In 1971, a 24-year-old fledgling artist named David Bowie (JOHNNY FLYNN) is sent to America to promote his newest record, The Man Who Sold the World. He is quickly met with an audience who are not yet ready for him. But during the tumultuous journey, Bowie slowly begins to realize a need to reinvent himself in order to truly become himself… and it’s within that realization that his iconic, celestial alter-ego Ziggy Stardust is born.



This release comes with a matted slip cover. The only feature is the Trailer.


VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

Shout Factory releases Stardust onto Blu-ray presented in 1080p high-definition and in the original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio. For the most part the picture looks good, as most modern movies do. Detail is well defined and colors seem to be in keeping with the 1970s time period.

The disc comes with both a 5.1 and 2.0 DTS-HD Master Audio track. Nothing fantastic about either, but dialogue is crisp and clean coming through the center speaker and the music score makes up the front and rear channels, just a shame none of it was Bowie’s actual music.
