The Briton, who has reinvented a thousand times, unveils a mystical and strange clip.
On a planet with Berber village-like, Bowie appears to begging eyes gouged out. Around him, the dancers into a trance, a young monkey-tailed woman and scarecrows. The decorated skull of an astronaut becomes the relic around which villagers prostrate, while Bowie getting a funny appearance of hysterical genius … hard to describe those ten minutes beautiful and amazing, almost as much as to describe the music accompanies them. For if the piece opens with electronic sounds, the song takes a turn before resolutely pop rock takes possession of the space. Blackstar is used generically to the series Panthers Canal +, with Tahar Rahim.
