Only true legends of rock music are known by one word. As with ‘Elvis’ everyone knows the name of the most creative and influential rock artist of all time: BOWIE. Whereas other artists remained constant in appearance, or gradually evolved their musical style, Bowie was in a state of permanent revolution: constantly re-inventing his persona and sound. From the 1960’s mixture of psychedelia meets fantasy for Space Oddity, through to the ground-breaking, Ziggy Stardust, Bowie defied any label that the music industry tried to place on him. From Thin White Duke to soulful rocker; music, art, fashion and sexuality were Bowie's playthings - he was truly an artistic chameleon.
Born David Jones in January 1947 he recreated himself as David Bowie, in 1966. For the next fifty years Bowie would carve out one of the most individual careers in music, film and the arts. Featuring contributions from those who collaborated with him and archive interviews with the great man himself, BOWIE is a fascinating exploration of the life and inspiration of a true rock and roll icon who inspired a whole generation to become heroes.

As someone who has watched the odd documentary about him and listened to stories about him on the radio, I have to say that this documentary was fascinating in that it covers much of his background. The absence of original songs is pretty much my only quibble. If hardly perfect, this is an entertaining look at one of the most influential musicians of all time It would be difficult to say anything about David Bowie without sounding patronizing. My summary line says it all
I saw Bowie from a new angle after watching this. If you're looking for a great retrospective on the life and impact of Bowie, see this for a reminder of what made him so very special.
Really really good documentary. The Man Who Changed The World is an intimate film that follows David Bowie's continual evolution throughout his music career. This is more that a celebration of his career because I learnt so much about Bowie's life. In particular his struggle to get known. Really recommend this.
