If You Are A Writer, Illustrator, Film Maker, You Will LOVE This!
I have just seen this for the first time and I've haven't been this delighted with any movie for a very, very long time.
If you're a writer, illustrator, screen writer, film maker, artist and Bowie fan, which I am, you're going to love this.

Top marks to the writers and director, they got together and created something truly delightful. A bright star among the usual cliches, handled with a wonderfully light touch and real intelligence. Absolutely loved it.
