Bowie is a legend - no doubt there. The story of his life is great, but could have been told better in this doc. Some interesting interviews, but disappointingly lacks in any actual Bowie music and uses repeated shots throughout. As a fan, was disappointed.
Interesting, but no Bowie music included and issues with volume fluctuations
The content was interesting and highlights how Bowie was always ahead of the trends in music creativity, fashion, and the ways in which the music industry operated, which explains how he got his reputation as a music genius and legend.
Do not watch this if you want to hear any of his recordings or see concert footage as there isn't any. Either the producers didn't want to fork out for the licensing fees or Bowie's estate did not give permission for their use.
The sound editing is pathetic with massive changes in volume throughout which is quite annoying.
It is these last two points that resulted in me only rating this documentary 5/10.
