Critic Reviews for David Bowie: Finding Fame

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

Bowie was, for once, not master manipulator of sound and vision, not virtuoso of a thousand disguises, but something sweeter: unguarded boy with a broken heart.

Finding Fame is the third film in Francis Whately's Bowie trilogy, after David Bowie: Five Years and David Bowie: The Last Five Years and is by far the most intriguing.

Any reality-show wannabe who expects instant fame and fortune after spending ten minutes on Towie should be forced to watch Francis Whately's exceptional David Bowie: Finding Fame.

February 11, 2019 | Full Review…

When is a rockumentary better than a biography? Francis Whately has created an unsurpassable trilogy of feature-length bio-docs, profiling the life of his subject.

Above all else, this documentary is about an individual's relentless impulse to create. It's about never giving up. And in this sense I'd argue that it is the most fascinating of the three films.

David Bowie: Finding Fame covers much of the same ground as Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story and Bowie: The Man Who Changed The World, it's just much better done and more more enjoyable to watch.
