    This does try to do a lot with its premise to the point where it's messy in tone and intent, and there are elements of dark humor that would gel better in moments where the tone is super serious, but the ensemble is excellent with the material they're given, Colin Stetson's musical score is equal parts euphoric and unsettling, and when the film’s concept of Saw in the world of affluence lands, it's very clever.

However, those up for the challenge will be illuminated by this revealing, raucous, stream-of-consciousness look inside the fractured mind of its subject. David Bowie is…
