Blackstar

Watched twice and still mulling it over. But a kind of wow.

A lot of the Outside gestalt in here, I think, with added jazz hands.

    1. Well, I’ve watched it three times now, and I won’t pretend I’m much the wiser. There are clear references to religious ecstasy, cosmic entropy and – arguably – Mexico’s Day of the Dead (although the opening scene is reminiscent of Del Rey’s original cover artwork for James P Hogan’s Inherit the Stars (http://tinyurl.com/ox98x6a). I guess we should just be grateful Bowie continues to challenge us on so many fronts: musical, visuals, fashion, coiffure.
