David Bowie’s film career is like a collector’s cabinet of different roles – just what you’d hope for from the chameleon of rock.
So how can we pick out the definitive features of David Bowie favorite films?
Even when Bowie’s movies don’t set the box office on fire, they’ve got something going for them.
Namely, great directors and co-stars.
Just look at The Hunger (Tony Scott, 1983).
David Bowie shares screen time with legends Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon, in a vampire flick by the director of Top Gun (Tony Scott, 1986).
If it’s weird, unusual or unconventional (but always cool), he’s played it.
An alien who falls victim to capitalism and booze?
But of course!
An alien who falls victim to capitalism and booze
Check out serious sci fi The Man who Fell to Earth (Nicolas Roeg, 1976) if that sounds like something you need to see. It doesn’t shy away from much – you’ve been warned!
Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction, though.
In biography Basquiat (Julian Schnabel, 1996), Bowie appears as Andy Warhol.
Worth seeing for meta value alone, as the two shared a creative community in real life, but didn’t get along.
Perhaps this song had something to do with it.
With all kinds of weird and wonderful options to choose from, how can I pick a favourite? Quite easily, actually.
Not only is it a must see musical, Labyrinth is one of the best David Bowie films.
It’s a fun fantasy movie, and in true Bowie style this world has a dark undercurrent.
Another true Bowie feature? It’s pretty glamorous for a goblin kingdom.
This world has a dark undercurrent
Duncan Jones’ interest in directing started out from a visit to the Labyrinth set, so if you’re a Moon (2009, Duncan Jones) fan, you owe this movie a lot.
How’s this halo of lightning for an impressive entrance?
As a fictionalised Nikola Tesla, inventor of the alternating current, Bowie’s supporting role is the definition of a great cameo.
Magicians daring each other towards higher and higher stakes, behind the bright lights of the stage?
Sounds like a perfect Bowie movie.
I’m cheating a little, it’s not a scripted movie.
Filmed by total fluke, this rockumentary’s got iconic costumes, electric performances and a few little glimpses backstage.
It preserves Ziggy’s famous demise at the Hammersmith Odeon.
So now it’s your turn, what are your David Bowie favourite films?
