"By the second half of 1971 David Bowie was justifiably being branded a one-hit-wonder, Lou Reed was considered washed-up following a disastrous solo debut, and Iggy Pop was seen as merely a drug crazed ex-Stooge, the band having split the year before for reasons linked to his deepening habit...This fascinating film investigates the era in which these brilliant, creative personalities worked most closely together. With the story told by those who were there at the time and via rare and classic film footage, plus recently discovered archive, seldom seen photographs and a host of other features, this programme (i.e. program) reveals a time of incredible creativity, astonishing energy and a sublime chain of events that changed music forever"--Container.

This is an especially informative English documentary (all the good rock'n'roll documentaries seem to be English) on David Bowie during his peak Glam/Glitter years of 1971-73. The popular cultural dialectic that we have come to accept is that Disco and Punk killed the Hippie, but really it was the Glam rocker that bumped the Hippies off their avant-garde pedestal. THE SACRED TRIANGLE does a good job establishing how evanescent the Glitter scene was, whipped up over a couple of years by Tony Defries' MainMan management company. One titanic takeaway for me from the documentary was the centrality of Bowie's guitarist Mick Ronson. I had no idea that besides Lou Reed himself Ronson is basically the guy responsible for TRANSFORMER, Reed's greatest solo album.
