Critic Reviews for David Bowie: Finding Fame

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

  • Bowie was, for once, not master manipulator of sound and vision, not virtuoso of a thousand disguises, but something sweeter: unguarded boy with a broken heart.

  • Any reality-show wannabe who expects instant fame and fortune after spending ten minutes on Towie should be forced to watch Francis Whately's exceptional David Bowie: Finding Fame.

  • David Bowie: Finding Fame covers much of the same ground as Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story and Bowie: The Man Who Changed The World, it's just much better done and more more enjoyable to watch.

    Aug 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Finding Fame is the third film in Francis Whately's Bowie trilogy, after David Bowie: Five Years and David Bowie: The Last Five Years and is by far the most intriguing.

    Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Whately's documentary did excellent work in rolling up all these untidy loose ends, covering both Bowie's childhood and the astonishing 11 years it took for him to achieve unbreakable fame with Ziggy Stardust.

  • It's a hypnotic, multilayered work that's never self-indulgent and always completely engaging.
