Basically everything David Bowie does belongs here, he’s just so freakishly awesome, and his new short sci-fi film Blackstar is no exception. Rumours have been swirling about it for a year. Expectations are high for the man who is the brand who is David Bowie.
Here’s what Flavorpill says about it:
The visuals are every bit as odd and dark, from the opening eclipse viewed from the vantage point of a rocky, remote planet to Bowie’s bandaged eyes to a circle of women whose movements suggest a sort of demonic possession. But the image that’s going to haunt me all night (at least) is the moment when a young woman with the tail of a mouse opens the visor of a spacesuit and discovers a blackened, bejeweled skull.
