The critical and popular success of ‘David Bowie is’, the V&A’s major exhibition dedicated to the great pop star, continues with emphasis, and the museum is electric with excitement among visitors. Our film about Bowie features Thurston Moore, Jeremy Deller and Daphne Guiness, among others, and offers a thorough and entertaining consideration of what makes Bowie such a special artist.
