And then there are his movies.
I think the key to understanding David Bowie, not just his movies or music, but to understand him himself, lies in the move The Man Who Fell to Earth. This is one fucked up movie, and I mean really crazy-cow-disease-fucked-up. But if you challenge yourself to digest it and see through it you get a glimpse of the real him. I strongly recommend this move to anyone who wants to understand David and his work.
I just finished watching Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. The cast a bit unusual - Takeshi Kitano and David Bowie... And the movie is differrent. Admittedly made by Japanese who were trying to whiten out the atrocities of their prison camps during WW2, but still an interesting thing. No further comments - go and see it ;-)
