David Bowie : "Moonage Daydream", Cinema, [2022]

This is a great music documentary about David Bowie. It is told as some kind of a self-portrait and it is put together by live and studio recordings and told entirely from David's point of view through various interview clips. It gives a great insight into how Bowie was thinking when creating music/art and his views on life in general.

Much of the material obviously focus on the 1970s and then there's some from "Let's Dance", a bit from "Outside" and also some from the time around his very last album "Blackstar".

Musically it is quite interesting too. The soundtrack features several remodeled/remixed/alternate versions of David Bowie songs spanning most of his career. I'm certainly going to get myself a copy of the soundtrack when it gets released in November. The sound quality was a bit lacking but I believe that this was due to the shortcomings of the audio system in the small cinema we watched the movie in.

The runtime of more than 2 hours is a bit too long and should have been shortened a bit, but that is a minor thing. This movie is definitely worth watching if you like some of Bowie's music, and really, who doesn't?
