HBO are continuing on their quest to deliver solid feature-length documentaries. Following this year’s Spielberg, which focused on the career and life of the celebrated filmmaker Steven Spielberg, comes David Bowie: The Last Five Years, which will debut in 2018.
Focusing on the artist’s final years, David Bowie: The Last Five Years presents a nuanced look at the evolution of Bowie’s music as told through archival footage and interviews with the musical legend’s bandmates. Largely focused on Bowie’s final two albums, The Next Day and Blackstar, the film also explores his musical, Lazarus, which he began developing in the midst of his illness.7
David Bowie: The Last Five Years is due to air on the cable channel Stateside on January 7th, 2018. We’re expecting that it will arrive on Sky Atlantic, which syndicates a lot of HBO content in the UK, shortly afterwards.
