Streaming Documentary Review | Discovering David Bowie
David Bowie is easily the most iconic musician of the modern era. This documentary explores Bowie’s beginnings in Brixton, London, which was still recovering from World War II. Bowie’s outrageous outfits, makeup, and performances is what helped cement him as a music legend. Throughout his long career, Bowie famously reinvented himself several times, and released multiple amazing albums due to his constantly adapting appearance.
As someone who already knows a lot about Bowie, I was surprised when this documentary discussed things that I had not previously known. Bowie’s personal life was shown, as well as his career. Still, I wished that the documentary had talked a bit more about Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust phase. I would recommend this documentary to anyone, regardless if they are a Bowie fan or not.
