RIP, obviously, to the unforgettable David Bowie.

In his honor…

Monster-of-the-Week: …this week the nod goes to John Blaylock, the glam vampire Bowie plays in Tony Scott’s 1983 The Hunger

That film’s wittiest scene comes when John ages, courtesy brilliant Dick Smith makeup, from a sexy New York Goth-club hipster into a grumpy old man, all while sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room…

Who hasn’t felt this way waiting for a doctor’s appointment?

FilmBar Phoenix shows The Hunger Friday evening, January 15, at 9:50 p.m. It’s an uneven movie, but worth catching if you’ve never seen it. They’re showing another Bowie fave, 1986’s Labyrinth, on Saturday, and maybe Bowie’s best film, Nicolas Roeg’s sad sci-fi tale The Man Who Fell to Earth, on Sunday and Monday.
