Liberated from the narrative conventions that plague most biographical documentaries, Moonage Daydream lures us into a cosmic dance of intoxicating imagery and timeless music in honor of the late shapeshifting, gender-defying, rock philosopher David Bowie. Amid psychedelic splashes of color, pristine concert footage and an assortment of filmic references, director Brett Morgen distills the essence of the nearly messianic figure whose disruptively ravishing art continues to puzzle and inspire into a vertiginous stream of conciseness. Audio from multiple interviews he granted over the decades underscores the free-flowing footage to let Ziggy Stardust speak for himself. Morgen manifests a sensorial invocation of Bowie’s spirit, suited to delight acolytes and nonbelievers alike, for a tribute worthy of his unclassifiable genius.—Los Angeles Times
“It’s an experience first and a documentary second.”—Detroit News
“A thoughtful, meditative, almost trance-inducing rumination on the meaning of art and life.”—Filmspotting
