I think I've mentioned in a dozen times now, but I'm super excited for the David Bowie is documentary showing tomorrow night at the Loft. I've actually had a screener for the film for a few weeks, but I haven't wanted to watch it on my sad not-terribly-large work monitor, because I feel like I'd be missing something out of the experience.
There are approximately one hundred films showing over the course of this forthcoming week at the Loft (two nights of "The Wrath of Khan," a week of "The Zero Theorem" and "To Be Takei," two more Tarantino flicks, etc.), but the highlight of this week in Tucson film for me is the David Bowie documentary "David Bowie is" showing on Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. A documentary accompanying an art exhibition created by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and currently travelling the world, the film looks at Bowie's magnificent career, explored through bits of the exhibition, including photographs, music videos, costumes and interviews with his collaborators and admirers. I guess your interest in this film would likely depend on your interest in Bowie himself, but if you care at all about rock 'n' roll, I'm not sure why you wouldn't be fascinated. Tickets are a little more than the regular Loft film, $12 for general admission, two bucks off for members, but as often happens with music-related film, Zia will be there giving stuff away.
