Palais de Tokyo in Paris are showing a very obscure David Bowie documentary from the 70′s entitled Cracked Actor. This very fascinating film takes a raw look into one of the most eccentric entertainers during an era which that would seem almost impossible. Check it out on October 16 if you are in the area because it will be more than worth your while.

“Cracked Actor is a 53-minute-long BBC television documentary film about the pop star David Bowie. It was filmed in 1974, at a time when Bowie was a popular and commercial success. He had also become addicted to drugs, including cocaine, and the documentary has become notorious for showing Bowie’s fragile mental state during this period. It was made by Alan Yentob for the BBC’s Omnibus documentary strand, and was first shown, on BBC2 in the UK, on January 26, 1975.”

Take a look at this five part trailer below, epic.
