As a dedicated Bowiephile, I must say I enjoyed this very much. There was the usual amount of "never-before-seen-footage" hype but for once this proved to be true. As a compressed view of five years there were, of course, some shortcomings (the Lodger album was not mentioned at all, for example) but it was well worth watching and I'll probably watch it again.

here in the UK there's a major (Tom?) Bowie exhibition currently running in the V+A in London:

Of course, it's completely sold out, even though it runs until August. I didn't manage to get tickets but from what I've seen and read online so far, there appears to be a lot of 'frocks' and not much else, so I'm not particularly disappointed that I can't go. This documentary made up for it, especially, as Bok says, the comments from the session musicians. Robert Fripp in particular was both interesting and entertaining. Ditto Carlos Alomar.

There's also a smaller Bowie-themed exhibition in Leeds, UK:

Not sure when this one closes. Has anybody been to either of these? Mr Sleepless?
