Moonage Daydream

I really like that Morgen didn’t interview anybody — it’s all snippets of Bowie talking, and footage of Bowie.

The first (I’d say) two thirds of this movie really work: It’s interesting footage, and Morgen lets the songs play to completion, etc etc. It’s all good stuff. But then when we get to the mid 80s, the film starts sagging, and Morgen’s lack of enthusiasm for Bowie’s 90s (and beyond) years make the last third a slog to watch.

Moonage Daydream. Brett Morgen. 2022.
