David Bowie's death in January 2016 felt like a major milestone. He was one of the most influential music artists of his generation, but Bowie before the creation of Ziggy Stardust, the alter ego that made him famous, remains largely unknown. This film follows five years of his early career, from the late 1960s through to the on-stage death of Ziggy Stardust in 1973. It shows how many of the ideas that originated during these early years and features never seen before archive interviews with some of Bowie's earliest collaborators.Written by
If you're looking for a comprehensive documentary about David Bowie's entire career than this is not it. This film does a great job documenting Bowie's early years of creativity and frustration within the music industry and his legendary metamorphosis into Ziggy Stardust, but that's where it ends unfortunately. All his great work from the 70's that follow Ziggy is left out, which annoyed me enough to write this review. What a shame.
