DAVID BOWIE: THE LAST FIVE YEARS
January 8, 2018  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: Well, it’s the U.S. premiere, anyway: The Last Five Years, a follow-up by filmmaker Francis Whately’s other Bowie documentary, Live Years, premiered in the U.K. a year ago. But here it is, and for Bowie fans, undoubtedly it will be worth the wait. Whereas Five Years was about five key, non-consecutive years in the singer-songwriter-actor’s career, The Last Five Years is a sequential study of the five years before his 2016 death. And it’s a prolific five years, too. Those are the years in which he emerged from retirement, cut new albums in the studio, and even collaborated on an off-Broadway musical, Lazarus. For a full review, see David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower
