A Bowie Documentary - without any Bowie Music?
6 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Very average. Some of the interviews were good but it jumped around too much and the constant segues into the same screenshots, showed it was made for US commercial TV breaks. Too much fluff and not enough filler

  • and how can you talk about this amazing music, without playing any of
it? Oh, you didn't pay the rights to use the music perhaps?

Totally unsatisfying.
