"Moonage Daydream" is David Bowie to the max
Documentary featuring the music, art and philosophy of David Bowie. Directed by Brett Morgen. Now playing in Toronto-area theatres. 135 minutes. PG
⭐⭐⭐1/2 (out of 4)
Brett Morgen’s David Bowie doc is cinema jazz: part mad idolatry, part surreal scrapbook, all David, voiced by him. It’s a joy to see every aspect of Bowie’s art celebrated, and to share his wild embrace of existence. The Bowie estate granted Morgen access to more than five million pieces of the artist’s materials, including music, paintings and unseen concert films. It seems at times like he’s put all of them into this movie, which is a lot to take in, even for hardcore Bowie fans. All the more reason to plan to see this on an IMAX screen, if possible. #MoonageDaydream 🌓
