Yves Saint Laurent

One of two fashion movies on my list, this one is about Yves Saint Laurent.

This covers the majority of his working life, and jumps around a lot. There’s not a lot of focus on his dresses, more on the drama of his life with his lover Pierre and... other loves Victoria and Jacques and such. While this is dramatised, we basically have the sense of another self-destructive artist type giving over into... well... self-destruction.

As such, it feels a little too long, and has trouble making a definite point. He has wild passions? Fashion was his only passion? He only survived because of the people who cared about him? Any of the above? All of the above?

Can't say I would watch this again, but it passed the time.
