There are fascinating nuggets, but nothing you couldn't pick up from a decent biography.
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.
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.
Bowie emerges as an aesthete and a rebel, a figure of dissident, unrepentant gorgeousness.
It's a little like hugely extended footage for the sort of arts review show that might feature Paul Morley. Look who it is.
While it's a very good video presskit for the exhibition, it makes for a peculiar sort of rockumentary. The exhibition is already one time removed from its ever-elusive subject. The film kind of telescopes that feeling.
Puffy rather than insightful, it's a slog even for Bowie diehards.
This peek into the elaborate world of a unique cultural icon hits enough high notes.
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.
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.
This informative walk-through provides a substitute for the glory of the real thing.
Basically one big, 100-minute promotional video, specifically designed to make the exhibition look amazing and convince people to buy a ticket.
