Brett Morgen brings the gift of sound and vision to “Moonage Daydream”, an electric audiovisual tour around the restless mind of renaissance man David Bowie, as cracked open by unfettered access to the late artist’s estate.
It quickly becomes clear that one film won’t be enough to capture this chameleon, so Morgen instead opts for a dazzling multi-media experience, loosely threaded with disembodied narrative as provided by conversations with Bowie during his lifetime. It’s a pristine sensory voyage, with astonishing sound – in particular the remastered Bowie concert audio – which calls for a big-screen event treatment for fans and converts-to-be.
