Director: Floria Sigismondi
David Bowie himself wrote the script for this video, which Floria Sigismondi directed. In the video, Ziggy Stardust swaps his otherworldly outfits for a simple Christ-like habit resigning himself to the corner. It features Gary Oldman as a priest with a wandering eye and French actress Marion Cotillard as a seductress who gets hit with an unexpected case of Stigmata. The Catholic League was quick to denounce it, which probably meant it was suitably controversial for the living legend’s return to making music videos.
