This was a wonderful rose colored look at a magical time and place. It was also a self-serving propaganda piece for YSL's one time lover and long time business partner.
It showed YSL as a fragile egotist who was capable of amazing creations, fueled by his own self-doubt and self-destruction. It played well against the stereotypical tortured artist, clearly elevating him from simple fashion designer to immortal artist.
It also made me want to run rampant through 70's discos, high on cocaine and cheap street hustlers.
