David Bowie, and his film acting roles

The late David Bowie brought something down to earth (literally, in one case) to his film acting roles. We look at his film acting roles.

Editor's note: we don't like to run material to generate clicks off the death of someone. We did, however, want to talk about the wonderful film and TV work that the late, great David Bowie has left behind. Hence, we've thus held this piece back to now. If it still feels too soon, then do give it a miss.

David Bowie's state of existence at the time of performing influenced his musical ‘personas’ enormously. Though such characters as Diamond Dogs’ Halloween Jack or Ashes To Ashes’ Pierrot seem superficially too outré and theatrical to be based in anything real, retrospectively we can see a private life exposed: Bowie’s exposure to fame and feelings of being an outsider informed the Ziggy »

2016 Sundance Trading Card Series: #8. Camille Rutherford (Jacqueline Argentine)

26 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2015 discoveries”.

This year I discovered Extras, the series Ricky Gervais did after The Office. It’s so funny. This guy is insane. I want his talent and his brain.

I go the cinema all the time, I think one movie that really impressed me was Foxcatcher. The script is incredible, the ideas, the atmosphere.

I want to buy the dvd. The last thing that comes to mind right now is David Bowie. All his songs. I can’t stop listening to him. Ashes to ashes. Heroes. Woew. He was wonderful. I also can’t stop listening to a Pink Floyd song at the moment, Paintbox. I love the melody. I want it in my next short film but I’ll never have the money for it. It must be so expensive to have Pink Floyd in a movie. Oh, I must say »

Michael Stipe's Facebook post about David Bowie is perfect

12 January 2016 10:06 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Michael Stipe, the longtime lead singer of Rem until its breakup in 2011, posted a message about David Bowie to the band's Facebook account. It recalls the starry-eyed wonder of his tribute to Andy Kaufman in "Man on the Moon." Stipe has long been an established fan of Bowie's. Commenting once on Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes," he said, "It’s so audacious as a piece of writing. You can go into any bar in the world, and if they play that song, watch people around the room. Each will sing along to a separate part. There’s about seven parts people sing along to. It's the audacity of not only writing about Major Tom, but then making it this flawless mess." Can't argue with that. »

David Bowie: The Fascinating Filmography of a Cracked Actor

11 January 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Bowie’s relationship to cinema and acting was characteristically complex and knotty even before he started: He famously had to change his name from Davy Jones because there was already a British actor with that name making major waves in music as part of the mega-hit TV manufactured band, the Monkees.

For an artist who transformed rock and roll music to great acclaim and financial rewards, David Bowie’s work as an actor never matched the notoriety and success of his recordings and concerts. But Bowie accomplished a feat that eluded Elvis and many other pantheon rockers who attempted to crossover from rock stardom to films and starred in a movie that has endured as a legitimate work of art: Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 sci-fi masterwork, “The Man Who Fell To Earth.” (The other contender for that distinction is Mick Jagger, whose “Performance” is ranked as a masterwork of British »

'Space Oddity' Astronaut Chris Hadfield Honors David Bowie: 'Goodbye Starman'

11 January 2016 11:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield shot to fame a few years ago thanks to a clever cover of David Bowie's classic tune "Space Oddity," which Hadfield recorded aboard the International Space Station. In the wake of Bowie's sudden death this weekend at age 69, Hadfield shared another tribute to the legendary artist.

The astronaut mourned the musician on Twitter, where he posted a message praising Bowie for his pioneering place in pop culture history. "Ashes to ashes, dust to stardust," Hadfield wrote. "Your brilliance inspired us all. Goodbye Starman."

Chris Hadfield (@Cmdr_Hadfield) January 11, 2016 Though Hadfield himself didn't re-post his "Space Oddity" video, many other media outlets did, and it's not hard to see why: The commander's poignant take on the iconic song was reportedly one of Bowie's favorite cover versions of the tune. »

The Man Who Fell To Earth has finally gone home and we look back at David Bowie's beautiful life

11 January 2016 3:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I was not much older than my oldest son is now, either fourth or fifth grade, the older girl next door who spent several years slowly initiating me to both the secret worlds of rock'n'roll and kissing, thus assuring those things would forever be linked in my mind, played me one of the many 45s she kept in a big giant carry-around box with the Rolling Stone lips on the cover. This one, she assured me, was "mind-blowing." She was right. The first time I heard "Space Oddity," it felt like I lifted off the ground with that countdown, infinity in endless mandala opening above me, as that strange voice, so thin at times, so powerful at others, sang with such longing, such powerful desire to both reach back to a humanity left behind and rocket on into whatever cosmic possibilities lay ahead. I must have played that record »
