Taken from a 2004 stop in Germany on the aptly named Reality Tour, this was, in fact, the image Bowie left the world with: He collapsed after the show, and would never play a full set again. Yet the visuals to be popularly enshrined after Bowie’s death in 2016 were of the more fantastical sort. Aladdin Sane and his lightning bolt became the memorial. Normcore Bowie didn’t., a BBC production that HBO is airing Jan. 8 (Bowie’s 71st birthday, two days before the two-year anniversary of his death). The director Francis Whately’s previous work, , was about Bowie’s iconically fabulous ’70s and ’80s; this one is largely about 2011 to 2016, a period when Bowie recorded two albums and created one musical. The film argues that Bowie used those efforts to deconstruct and rebuke his own legend—which had the clever effect of reinforcing it. Life as Bowie , a jazz ensemble for , the producer Tony Visconti for both—rehearse their compositions anew on camera amid testimonials. We hear about Bowie handing out nondisclosure agreements, giving drumming instructions, and keeping shorter hours than he did at his peak (presumably due to his health problems). What emerges is an oddly endearing notion: Bowie as manager, Bowie as bandleader, Bowie as clock puncher—though enigmatic in all cases. “If you got a smile, you’d gone in the right direction,” the guitarist Gerry Leonard says of Bowie’s recording-session directing.featured scrappy, garage-rocking songs that often made nostalgia their explicit subject matter. One remarkable sequence in the documentary has the album’s cover designer remembering Bowie encouraging him to deface the musician’s ultra-famous iconography. Similarly, the 2015 theatrical production , for which Bowie composed the music and lyrics, poignantly revisited the character he played in the 1976 film . Writing a musical, we’re told, was a “bucket list” item for Bowie, and he took as active a role behind the scenes as he could. The actor Michael C. Hall recounts being surprised and moved to see Bowie show up on opening night, just over a month before his death.masterful jazz opus —released on his 69th birthday and just two days before his death—that fans may be most eager to have unpacked by Whately. The director doesn’t deliver definitive answers about the cryptic lyrics that many have read as a farewell note. But those around Bowie were struck by the uncanniness of the circumstances. “A long time, Major Tom’s been trying to find peace and rest, and he found it in ‘Blackstar,’” says the multi-instrumentalist Mark Plati, referring to the skeletal spaceman in that song’s clip. The video’s director, Johan Renck, reports that early in the process, Bowie spoke of his impending death, but it ended up having no effect on the work. Even the music video for ’s “Lazarus,” which had Bowie singing from a hospital bed, supposedly came out of Renck’s interpretation of the song’s title, not as a direct comment on Bowie’s life. nobly focuses on Bowie’s work rather than on his personal biography, but Bowie was so effective at marrying persona and art that you leave with a sense that you have glimpsed something more. Toward the end, Tony Visconti shares a raw vocal take Bowie gave while recording “Lazarus.” You can hear him breathing and shuddering between the words he belted.
