Yes, I have. Unfortunately it’s as bad as the reviews suggest. I guess for the avid Bowie fan, it’s at best an interesting curio from what was his most creative period musically, but it’s hard to find any of the Berlin inspiration rubbing off on this film. The director David Hemmings did lose control of the final cut, and a great deal of the additional footage was lost in a fire, so you’re left with 90 minutes of incomprehension. I can’t see Criterion picking this up anytime soon.
