This is a good documentary if you're not a hardcore Bowie fan. I wasn't able to ignore the mistakes and irritating commentary from people like Lawrence Meyers who feel compelled to over-exaggerate the role they played in Bowie's life. More negativity to follow--but on a positive note-- some wonderful interview clips and it was nice to hear from Mary Finnegan.

The first hour of this 1.5 hour doc. leads up to Ziggy Stardust. Approximately one and a half minutes is spent on Ziggy and then it skips immediately to Station to Station. I ended up turning it off about twenty minutes from the end when it became clear it was going to devote time to Angie's slander.

P.S. The makers of this doc did not get the rights to use Bowie's music therefore leading them to use a huge number of live clips, muted, with misc. background music going.

I tried really hard to like this documentary. It should have been better than it is. A little boring.

If you like David Bowie, then you will not be disappointed by the content of this bio-documentary.

"The Man Who Changed The World" offers the viewer a look at the career of Bowie through stills, film clips, and interviews with people who had met him over the course of his lifetime.

To be sure - At the very height of his popularity, David Bowie was, undoubtedly, a significant influence on youth culture and the direction of pop music and contemporary fashions.

"The Man Who Changed The World" is yet another celebrity-documentary to be released in the wake of the tragic death of pop-idol, David Bowie in 2016.

There can be no denying that at the very pinnacle of his popularity - Bowie had a phenomenal influence (as had Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson) on the direction of pop music and on the contemporary fashions of his generation.

Through stills, interviews, and film clips (from various stages in Bowie's career) - "The Man Who Changed The World" offers the viewer a fond reminiscence of a dynamic individual who was greatly admired, emulated, and respected by millions of adoring fans from all across the face of this planet.

Sat down to watch this with my friend who is a huge music buff. He watches documentaries while working and he and i both agreed that this one was pretty bad.
