The Sacred Triangle: Bowie, Iggy and Lou: 1971-1973 DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This documentary is an intriguing one. It serves sort of like a thesis paper. The thesis is perhaps not completely articulated in a concrete fashion. Instead it’s more of a linking of the three musical powerhouses that were David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed and shows how they were intertwined and served a joint purpose in influencing the direction of music. This is accomplished through interviews, video clips and more. It really makes you think about the way musical style and trends develop. It’s an interesting ride through the early 1970s and highly recommended to anyone interested in the history of rock music.
