Unabashedly visceral as it may be, Moonage Daydream doesn’t always escape the moony-eyed feeling of hero worship, sometimes at the cost of nuance. It's fair to say this audio-visual spectacular isn't interested in pandering to the non-fans, and isn't interested in using talking heads, timelines or pointers to explain where in Bowie's life it is.

At 2 hours 20, there's a feeling some of the edit could have been a little more brutal as sequences are repeated for no narrative gain, a somewhat surprising touch given how much footage was on hand to editors. coming through with distinct instrumentation and position, often filling the soundstage with heavier rock anthems and delicate acoustic moods. By acting as if Bowie’s career finished decades before it actually did, Morgen limits the film to repeating imagery and material that have been better covered elsewhere, while denying viewers the poetic finish that Bowie himself orchestrated for his life and career. It’s no “Elvis: That’s The Way It Is,” offering fans a chance to revel in great songs being brilliantly performed.Having graduated from King's College in Wilkes-Barre, PA in 2014, I've been looking for a platform in which I can share my passions. Morgen pulls together a feature made up of file footage and old clips, while newer visual effects and artful detours are present. In fact, there is plenty of footage where I think that the difference in quality between the native 4K and 1080p presentations is insignificant, and these are not the areas where standard definition content is used. And while the Montage of Heck director may appear to be in his thrall at times, the final product is one that will provide rich emotional resonance to fans - but one which may prove chilly to those who only have a fleeting and cursory knowledge of David Bowie.

I am glad to have seen it but cannot imagine revisiting it regularly; I sincerely wish I had enjoyed it more than I did. Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performances and music, MOONAGE DAYDREAM is the first officially sanctioned film to explore Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey, guided by Bowie’s own narration. Combined with Morgen’s jittery editing style, Moonage Daydream above all evokes a feeling of restlessness—wholly appropriate to an artist who not only describes himself as restless in the film, but embodied that voraciousness through an oeuvre that spanned a wide range of styles and a desire for near-constant reinvention, as exemplified through his series of ever-changing stage and screen personas. Second, Bowie was very smart and did a lot of interesting things to take maximum advantage of the mystique. The one and only person speaking throughout the entire movie is Bowie himself over the many years of his career.encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Moonage Dream arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage, performances and music, Brett Morgen’s (The Kid Stays in the Picture, Cobain: Montage of Heck, Jane) feature length experiential cinematic odyssey explores David Bowie’s creative, musical and spiritual journey. It’s not a concert film; though it features clips from many, many songs, it doesn’t present a single performance of one in full. While Morgen’s kaleidoscopic editing seems a promising approach at the start, his utilization of the same bag of tricks again and again becomes less illuminating and rather monotonous by the time the film limps to the finish line.Morgen also makes the limiting decision to focus almost exclusively on Bowie’s work in the 1970s and 1980s, with only a few brief moments acknowledging the mid-1990s portion of his career. It would have been interesting to hear why he focused on the portions of Bowie’s life that he ultimately chose, and illuminating to discover why he felt other equally acclaimed moments were deemed unworthy of inclusion. As a result, much of the most valuable content, like the interviews where Bowie begins addressing the void that existed between his personal and public life and the reasons behind the seismic shift that occurred in his career after he relocated from Los Angeles to Berlin, never becomes the foundation of a coherent and illuminating story. In his commentary, Brett Morgen primarily discusses his methodology in making the film and how he went about trying to create a “cinematic interpretation of Bowie. This is one of the best aspects of the movie: you don’t have any other musician, rock historian or journalist telling you about what Bowie was like.
