Documentarian Brett Morgen adapts the career of David Bowie into a genre-defying, audio-visual experience.
At every turn, Morgen’s film is a bombastic, overstimulating, poignant, life-affirming and risk-taking summation of the artist’s ethos and maturation as a person.
After carving out a career of lasting dynamic influence in documentary, Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture) turns his lens to the ultimate music subject: David Bowie. But with a subject at its heart who traversed in and around fact and fiction, the resulting film is one that steps beyond the documentary form. Not a concert film, not a music video and, no, not a documentary, Moonage Daydream is instead a hyper-saturated, audio-visual experience of its own.
After setting the scene from the start with a rousing ‘Hallo Spaceboy’ intercut with science-fiction moments from the history of cinema – think Méliès mashed up with Bladerunner – the film jets off, charting a chaotic path through the artist's career.
Dynamic! Electric! And thoroughly Bowie.
Working in cooperation with David Bowie's estate, and with unprecedented access to a treasure trove of unseen concert footage, audio recordings and films, Moonage Daydream is a masterfully edited kaleidoscopic collage, piecing together David Bowie's career in a chaotic (and impressively coherent) language of its own.
