Where to go, what to see this month.

Watch: McQueen

Spend 111 minutes emersed in the subversive, artistic and darkly captivating world of renegade fashion designer Alexander McQueen. The documentary, directed by Ian Bonhôte And Peter Ettedgui is a sensitive and moving view of the wildly creative iconoclast, following McQueen’s meteoric rise from Central Saint Martins graduate in 1992, to his appointment as creative director of Givenchy in 1997 and the final years he dedicated to his own label before his death in 2010.

Released 8th June, Showing at Barbican cinema until June 14th, barbican.org.uk, Regent St Cinema until June 24th regentstreetcinema.com
