David Bowie is Back – and it’s about damn time
Well, I guess I know what I’ll be doing on May 25th.
This entire blurb has been lifted from the official David Bowie Facebook page. I’m so excited, I could just pee myself:
FIVE YEARS DOCUMENTARY ON BBC2 NEXT WEEK
“Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two…”
We here at DBFBHQ had the good fortune to be at a preview screening of this superb film last week and we were blown away.
Francis Whately’s Five Years is a genuine treasure for all that appreciate the work of David Bowie and there truly is something for everybody in the 90-minute visual feast.
If you think you’re familiar with all the footage of David Bowie that’s out there, then you didn’t reckon on the skill of the researchers for this documentary.
Beautifully edited, in both sound and vision, Five Years is a film you will want to watch again and again and more than anything it just confirmed for us how lucky we are to be around while David Bowie was a creative force on the planet.
Hats off to Francis and his team.
We’re not going to give you any spoilers because you just need to see it, but here’s the blurb from the Radio Times, who will be publishing a front-cover Bowie feature next week.
Can’t wait to see this, and I am so glad that none of the rumors about his poor health were true.
