David Bowie rare and unseen DVD, The Sacred Triangle DVD

 (Sexy Intellectual) I expected a lot from the Sacred Triangle documentary, a look at Bowie, Iggy and Lou Reed circa '71 centered around the Max's Kansas City scene. But seeing Jayne County and Leee Black Childers jabber away made me want to see a movie about them, not a bunch of stuff I already know about the most famed freaks in above ground underground music history. But I expected the rare and unseen Bowie DVD to suck, all boring interviews from the late 80s and 90s i was sure. i was sure wrong. Instead it's mainly a dry but compelling interview from Man Who Fell to Earth Days that demonstrates Bowie's class, ease, and awesomeness (and that he was a different species from Englishmen). There's also a gracious interview outside a concert with an amteurish reporter and even a 90s interview where he still comes off as pretty awesome, much awesomer than any music he made 10 years in any direction. But he's no Jayne County!
