Saint Laurent, which had its North American premiere at the 52nd New York Film Festival last fall, is a different kind of biopic, focusing on a particularly hedonistic time in the life of legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. The film playfully warps and obscures the passage of time, which results in a delirious viewing experience. Anchored by an enigmatic performance by Gaspard Ulliel, the fashion icon becomes a myth, a brand, and an avatar of his era. Read more about Saint Laurent in the cover story of Film Comment magazine's March/April issue.
