All the more poignant with David Bowie’s passing last year, Ziggy Stardust brilliantly documents the artist’s final performance as this gender-bending, red-mulleted alter-ego at London’s Hammersmith Odeon in 1973. Bowie-as-Ziggy belts out such hits as “Changes,” “All the Young Dudes,” and “Oh! You Pretty Things,” as well as bracing covers of the Velvet Underground’s “White Light/White Heat” and the Rolling Stones’ “Let’s Spend the Night Together.” All the epochal bravado onstage (and mounting tension backstage, as the band didn’t get the memo) is intimately captured by filmmaker D. A. Pennebaker and his camera crew. (91 mins., 35mm)
