Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (12A)
Dir. D.A. Pennebaker, UK, 1973, 126 mins.
One of the most impressive live-concert films of all time, filmed by the masterful D.A. Pennebaker. The direct cinema pioneer set about capturing vérité material backstage to mix with the three-camera concert footage. When Bowie stunned the audience, and his own band, by announcing live on stage it would be the last ever Ziggy show, all the ingredients fell into place for a truly remarkable concert film. Introduced by Tony Davey, The Box, Plymouth.
