Bowie's Home Movie 

The documentary David Bowie is attempts to encapsulate the singer/artist/actor's nearly Picasso-like level of production. The film was created as both a tour of and a companion to the Victoria and Albert Museum of London's exhibition of Bowie artifacts, all drawn from his personal archives of his 50-year career. Besides the beautifully intricate Ziggy Stardust costumes, photographs of both professional and personal caliber are included, as well as drawings, paper scraps of lyric scribbles and other previously unseen ephemera. The creators of the exhibit were given complete scope when presented with source material for the documentary, so audiences are in for a treat if they think they have seen all there is to see of the Goblin King. David Bowie is screens at 7 p.m. at Ronnies 20 Cinema (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; 314-843-4336 or www.davidbowie.com/davidbowieisfilm). Tickets are $12.50.
