Cineplex Theatre, Avalon Mall
Moonage Daydream (Germany, United States 2022) 135 min
Directed by Brett Morgen
With David Bowie, Trevor Bolder, Ken Fordham et al.
This is a spectacular visual tribute to the late David Bowie’s kaleidoscopic career. Writer, performer, artist, painter, composer, singer, dancer, actor, intellectual, Bowie was all these things and more. Acclaimed documentarian Morgen throws away the usual tropes of the genre, relying instead on the rich stash of archival material the Bowie estate allowed him to borrow. We don’t need talking heads when we have so much stuff Bowie himself offered in smart TV interviews over many years. And there’s so much music, so much improv and experimentation. This is a must-see-and-hear big-screen experience, a luscious feast of 70s, 80s, and 90s pop culture.
