    Sensual biopic encapsulates an age

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 28/11/2014

    » Bertrand Bonello's Saint Laurent is an exquisite opium den, a biography of sensual feelings rather than of fact. Running at 150 minutes, the film is more interested in what Yves Saint Laurent senses, feels, imagines and dreams than the actual reality around him. Usually, a biopic of a personality strives to "humanise" the subject — we're supposed to see him/her at his best and worst, his genius and his foibles. Here, Bonello and his actor, Gaspard Ulliel, have done something more startling: they don't humanise Saint Laurent as much as sensualise him.
