Movie Info

Bowie is the man who elevated his music to what can only be described as an art form. Driven by an entirely deeper dynamic than most pop artists, David Bowie inhabits a very special world of extraordinary sounds and endless vision. Unwilling to stay on the treadmill of rock legend and avoiding the descent into ever demeaning and decreasing circles of cliché, Bowie writes and performs what he wants, when he wants. His absence from the endless list of "important events" has just fuelled interest. Constant speculation about what the guy was up to has even led some to wonder if this is his greatest reinvention ever. David Jones!(C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for David Bowie Is Happening Now

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (5)

  • There are fascinating nuggets, but nothing you couldn't pick up from a decent biography.

    Jul 4, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's something to watch the shining eyes of doughy, aging Brits as they stand before the kaleidoscopic jumpsuit he wore on Top of the Pops in 1972.

    Nov 19, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Don't expect much insight into the music itself. And don't expect after to feel like you were there - if museum exhibitions had DVD extras, this would be one.

    Nov 18, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The film itself, for all the richness of its content, is a strange and unsatisfactory hybrid -- a cross between a conventional documentary and a guided tour of a gallery.

    Nov 14, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Bowie's many incarnations from Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke make appearances and it is oddly moving seeing his song lyrics written on lined A4 in cursive, schoolboyish hand.

  • Bowie emerges as an aesthete and a rebel, a figure of dissident, unrepentant gorgeousness.
