Hooked to the Silver Screen Tally

Hooked to the Silver Screen is my series of commentaries about movies in which Bowie appeared. The name of the series comes from a line in the song, “Life on Mars.”

I am using the Bowie-esque emojis to rate each of these movies on a scale from one to four Bowies. This is a tally of movies I’ve rated so far and will be updated with each new entry into the series.

* I’m including Christiane F and Absolute Beginners on this list based on my memory of having seen them many years ago. I haven’t been able to find them of late, and when I do, they will get their individual entires. I very well might change my rating after seeing them again.
