I’m always intrigued when a biopic gets dragged up of someone who’s been alive during my lifetime who I’ve GENUINELY NEVER HEARD OF – not that my life’s particularly tuned towards the fashion world.  No idea if Ewen MacGregor’s performance/likeness was accurate or not, but it certainly was committed and compelling, albeit seemingly purposefully not trying to build a sense of sympathy with the protagonist.  The performance is quite consuming and you get the idea that MacGregor’s enjoying the flex. I particularly liked the Liza Minnelli character/characterisation.  Not the most uplifting bit of TV of 2021 – but by no means the most harrowing.
