Very enjoyable documentary about a legend

Quite interesting and heartwarming! I didn't know so much of a lot stuff they talk about which is great and inspirational. I don't know why something like this would get hate, it is very intriguing. Glad this is available on showtime, it's not as bad as some say.

David Bowie: Finding Fame

Finding fame was not easy for David Bowie. It took a while for him to find his own voice. Until then he borrowed Anthony Newley's with The Laughing Gnome. Bowie was more of a cheeky Cockney, even singing songs from Mary Poppins. As a Londoner, Bowie also had time to try to imitate The Kinks or sing songs of the style of The Who. The songs which Bowie released but they did not chart until The Space Oddity. Even then fame was far away. Bowie was a man who was looking for an image as well as a voice and it seems he was getting there slowly. The look came courtesy of Ziggy Stardust. Once fame was achieved, he put Ziggy away. It was now David Bowie from now on. Although this documentary looked at his childhood, his parents seemed to be distant from him as well as each other. It did lack input from close family and childhood friends. I would liked to have heard more of Bowie before he became a singer. Also Angie Bowie is missing from this documentary. She was instrumental in those early days and getting Bowie and his band to have a certain image and experiment with costumes.

Building Bowie

David Jones, better known by his stage name David Bowie, is often considered the last word in cool, with his musical innovations, ambiguous sexuality, and varied constructed public personas. But an interesting feature of his early career was just how uncool it was. Bowie wanted to be a star, was interested in all forms of art, but as a performer, essentially made novelty records. Even his breakout hit, "Space Oddity", was really just one such novelty, albeit one he built upon (and even then not instantaneously) to provide the platform for his ultimate fame. This intriguing documentary gives us a glimpse of the young Bowie, ambitious but gauche, and scratching around as he tries to make a living on the outer fringes of the musical scene. It's interesting, even if you don't particularly appreciate his music: we often praise artists for being "authentic", and Bowie was authentic in the sense that he wanted to perform, but it's clear that we got from him were performances, and in the early cases, not very good ones. And in an age where stars are scouted, trained and marketed from earliest youth, it's intriguing to look back on a misfit's rather unlikely path to global fame.
