While the whole world is slowly coming to terms with the fact that David Bowie has passed away, we will skip the whole collective mourning thing and focus on the positive – the art he left behind once he departed.
Specifically, his roles in some of the coolest movies modern cinematography has to offer.
His contributions outside the realm of pop-rock music are just as noteworthy, which is why we have decided to take a closer look at these 10 awesome films that had the privilege to be adorned with David’s immense stage presence and talent.
1. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992)
What better way to spice up David Lynch’s already uncanny reality, than to put the zaniest dude ever in your film. Back in 1992, Lynch made “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me”, which was a prequel to his cult television series, and decide to put Bowie in it. Good call.
The movie focuses on the last seven days in the life of Laura Palmer whose plastic-wrapped corpse is found floating in a river and stands as the fulcrum for the famous TV series.
Though a bit brief, Bowie’s cameo as missing FBI agent Phillip Jeffries is pretty awesome, especially since he looks like he’s just popped out of one of his famous music videos.
Bowie comes out of nowhere in his dashy outfit (beige-colored suit and colorful shirt that have ‘90s written all over them), utters a few incoherent sentences, leads us into a yet another Lynchian dream scenes, and suddenly disappears.
