"A fitting tribute to a remarkable talent who remains sorely missed."
— Ed Gibbs, Little White Lies
"Much of this film has never been seen before, and it is a true treasure trove."
— Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
"At a lengthy 140 minutes, the film flashes by. The deeper you go the more you want to know, and the more there is to know."
— Luke Hicks, The Film Stage
"An 140-minute shapeshifting epiphany-slash-freakout leading to the revelation that, yes, we’re lovers of David Bowie and that is that."
— Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Abandons all thought of straightforward narrative in favor of an immersive and purposefully mysterious and chaotic Bowie experience."
— Steve Pond, TheWrap
"Moonage Daydream, a wildly creative tribute to everything Bowie achieved over four and a half decades, sets a sky-high bar as cinematic fan-service, and it leaves you buzzing."
— Tim Robey, The Telegraph
"At every turn, Morgen’s film is a bombastic, overstimulating, poignant, life-affirming and risk-taking summation of the artist’s ethos and maturation as a person. In short, “Moonage Daydream” is the film Bowie would’ve proudly made."
— Robert Daniels, RogerEbert.com
"Whatever your favourite side to the limitlessly faceted David Bowie, this magnificently mind-bending film serves it up in a 140-minute career-spanning opus that races by in a snap of the fingers. It’s almost as extraordinary as the man himself."
— Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
"It’s a glorious celebratory montage of archive material, live performance footage, Bowie’s own experimental video art and paintings, movie and stage work and interviews with various normcore TV personalities with whom Bowie is unfailingly polite, open and charming."
— Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
