One of the highlights of the documentary for me is the performance of Rock’n’roll with Me from the 74 Soul Tour, a little-remembered gem of his discography. David Bowie’s longtime producer, Tony Visconti, was responsible for the documentary’s incredible sound mixing and because of that, it provided the closest I could get to a Bowie concert.

Even the fact that Bowie was a Capricorn is important in understanding both his private and success-oriented personality traits. We also see his private nuance when he feared displaying his paintings believing in a negative reaction from the public. Here lies an attempt to deconstruct the myth, unveiling his vulnerability.

The Man Who Fell to Earth is the least beloved film among Bowie fans, but its scenes fit so well into the documentary that I bet it will lead fans to give it another try. Photo: Universal/Neon

“We want Bowie” screamed a fan at one of his concerts in the ’80s. The passages with fans are a highlight of the documentary and make us want to be there screaming along and sharing the same ecstasy. Photo: Universal/Neon
