Top Ten Movie Performances by David Bowie

The Top Ten

1 Jareth - Labyrinth Jareth - Labyrinth

One of his most iconic film performances in his carrer. Personally, His best one, yet! The casting of Bowie is kind of genius, as he brings his trademark ambiguity to making the villain both attractive and repulsive, lending the film, which is all puppets and riddles elsewhere, a slightly more grown-up slant as a result. - TechnoTarantino

2 Thomas Jerome Newton - The Man Who Fell To Earth Thomas Jerome Newton - The Man Who Fell To Earth

He was himself in this movie. He didn't even have to act. - Unicornkay

3 Nikola Tesla - The Prestige Nikola Tesla - The Prestige

Whether Bowie was an actor of great versatility and range seems somewhat beside the point when he brought something that simply no one else could have. And in this deliciously twisty, his character lends a welcome, scientific and supernatural tinge to proceedings... because he’s Tesla? Because he’s Bowie? Does it matter? - TechnoTarantino

4 Major Jack CelIiers - Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence Major Jack CelIiers - Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence
5 David Bowie (himself) - Zoolander David Bowie (himself) - Zoolander
6 Andy Warhol - Basquiat Andy Warhol - Basquiat
7 Pontius Pilate - The Last Temptation Of Christ Pontius Pilate - The Last Temptation Of Christ

This comment is coming from someone who is non-religious, this movie is actually not bad at all! This is typical Scorsese mastery. David Bowie does an incredible performance in character. - TechnoTarantino

8 Phillip Jeffries - Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me Phillip Jeffries - Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
9 John Blaylock - The Hunger John Blaylock - The Hunger
10 David Bowie (himself) - Extras
