"A man on top of his game." HBO has unveiled the first brief teaser trailer for a feature-length documentary titled David Bowie: The Last Five Years, a profile of the late musicians final five years. The filmmaker behind this doc also made a film about the best five years of Bowie's life, and now will follow that up with this one, with seems to look back at his entire career and how it culminates in these final five years. The Last Five Years will chronicle the evolution of his music, and also focus on his final two studio albums: The Next Day from 2013, and Blackstar from 2016, which was released on Bowie's 69th birthday, just two days before his death. It will also examine his work on the rock stage musical "Lazarus", which he barely finished before dying. Whether or not you're a Bowie fan, this looks like an entertaining, inspiring look at a creative genius.

This looks very nice. // It always raises an eyebrow when I hear the proper British pronunciation of Bowie's name.
