Saint Laurent

The second lavish film biography of Yves Saint Laurent in a single year, this 'unauthorised' version is the more sensuous affair, less concerned with ticking off the life story than with sampling the man's excesses, his influences, his demons and the sheer delight of his creative triumphs. Bertrand Bonello's Saint Laurent beckons with the promise of an inside look at the hectic and mysterious world of fashion and you are transported into the workshops where Yves Saint Laurent designed his couture collections of the late 1960s and early 70s, and into the business meetings where his brand-extension strategies were hatched. After-hours you follow the designer, in the company of friends, lovers and hangers-on, to Paris nightclubs and cruising areas, to Morocco and to bed. A few names are dropped Andy Warhol, Loulou de la Falaise  but mostly you sweep through the parties and runway shows without stopping for introductions, as if you already knew everyone who mattered.
