Moonage Daydream is a beautiful tribute to David Bowie.

A cinematic odyssey exploring David Bowie’s creative and musical journey. From visionary filmmaker Brett Morgen, and sanctioned by the Bowie estate.

Moonage Daydream is yet another beautiful documentary that’s entirely made up of archival footage, this year has already had a decent amount of those including The Princess (Princess Diana documentary), Fire Of Love and Riotsville USA. The documentary shows a lot of concerts from David Bowie as well as some very interesting interviews that the film goes over in great detail, the editing combined with the film’s style is truly fantastic. It completely matches David Bowie’s style and what made him so recognizable what’s even better is despite simply showing archival footage the documentary still has a large goal, which is to give compelling insight in Bowie’s career what he thought of certain times of his career, and his path as an artist. David Bowie was a major influence to several people and film is very aware of that, Bowie share’s his experiences through his career as well as his goals. The music is fantastic as always reminding us of Bowie’s talent which really dives head first into entertaining the viewer, Brett Morgan does a fantastic job creating a journal like film for David Bowie. It’s one of those documentaries where it’s a lot more personal, like David Bowie’s narration at times feels like he’s having a direct conversation with you. It’s truly a beautiful showcase of never before seen footage combined with excellent visuals both of which blend so well together to create a stunning portrait.

Moonage Daydream is available in theaters.

Stardust (2020)

Stardust will chronicle the young David Bowie’s first visit to the US in 1971 – a trip that inspired the invention of his iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

Stardust is honestly one of the worst things I’ve ever seen and that is no exaggeration. First off it’s worth noting that David Bowie and his family didn’t allow this movie to use his music. When David Bowie sadly passed away, his family said NOT to release this movie. But they went ahead and did that anyway, what do I even say about this movie? The acting is dreadful there isn’t one scene that has a good performance. The writing feels like a first draft that wasn’t even completed, it’s a gigantic mess of a movie that truly feels like nobody gave a crap while making it. If you thought Bohemian Rhapsody was a bad Biopic of a famous singer Stardust makes Bohemian Rhapsody look like a masterpiece. The direction is horrid it really shows nobody had any idea what they were doing with this movie, luckily Stardust has seemed to fall into the cracks and got almost no attention after it’s release. Which I’m glad but my point is this should had never been released especially when the family of a person you are making a movie about flat out tells you “don’t release this movie” it’s a dreadful mess that I recommend avoiding at all costs.
