Synopsis by Nathan Southern
David Bowie's boldest (and most critically championed) effort -- the 1973 thematic glam rock EP The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars -- receives a full documentary exploration and tribute in the home-video release Rock Milestones: David Bowie -- Ziggy Stardust. In candid interviews, Bowie, his collaborators, and his contemporaries reminisce about the events that led up to and followed the creation of Stardust and offer a fresh perspective on the album in 30-plus-year musical hindsight, while the film features classic archival performance footage of Bowie in concert, covering live interpretations of the material on the album. Interviewees include Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder, and Wood Woodmansey.
