The new documentary film David Bowie is does not tackle the epic career of the legendary rock star, but rather takes you inside London's Victoria and Albert Museum's (V&A) exhibition, where more than 300 pieces of Bowie history are on display. Stories behind the extraordinary stage costumes, handwritten lyrics, sketches, and other artwork attempt to humanize the larger than life performer and expose the inspiration behind his otherworldly musical characters.
You won't see any new interviews with the 67-year-old performer. There are no insights to his sexuality or addictions. No mention of his work Klaus Nomi. Instead, the documentary takes place during the last day of V&A's exhibition before the show started a worldwide tour. It will arrive at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago on September 23, the same day the film will be shown at more than 100 theaters across the nation, including Phoenix's FilmBar.More »
