Don't feed the musicians with bread, let them light up in the movies. Many music stars try their hand at cinema, but not everyone gets the main role. You can count them on one hand. This collection is for those who love music as much as they love movies.
Madonna in Evita
Madonna was filmed a lot and with pleasure. She has starred in Shanghai Surprise and Desperate Search for Susan, Dick Tracy and Body in Evidence, but has won a Golden Raspberry for her worst performance over and over again. The main success of Madonna in the film industry was the role of Evita in the film of the same name. Critics have finally admitted that she has an acting talent. And the singer soon announced that she was ending her acting career - and took up directing.
Mick Jagger in "Performance"
The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has several significant roles, for which he received sincere praise from critics. A career success for him was the films "Performance" and "Ned Kelly", published in the early 70s. Twenty years later, the musician returned to cinema with roles in The Fugitive (1992) and The Addictions (1997).
Phil Collins in Buster
Phil Collins, if it were not for the star of the rock scene, he would certainly have become a famous actor. His role as a charming robber in the comedy "Buster" (1988) earned him critical acclaim (and the love of moviegoers). Later, the musician starred in "Crooks" and "Captain Hook", and also voiced such cartoons as "Balto" and "The Jungle Book".
Eminem at 8 Mile
starred in the only film, but with his performance in "8 Mile" he conquered the cinematic world. His semi-autobiographical role as an aspiring rapper earned him a nomination for the 2003 MTV Movie Awards.
Bjork as Dancer in the Dark
After filming the film "Dancer in the Dark" Lars von Trier, Bjork vowed to ever act in films: the experience of transforming into a half-blind woman was too exhausting. The singer's performance impressed movie fans so much that Bjork won four awards for Best Actor, including the European Academy Award.
David Bowie as The Man Who Fell to Earth
But the most successful musician in cinema was David Bowie. Each film with his participation became an event and is now considered a cult classic: "The Man Who Fell to Earth" (1976), "Lovely Gigolo, Poor Gigolo" (1979), "Hunger" (1983) (where they played together with Pictures Deneuve immortal vampires), "Labyrinth" (1986), "The Last Temptation of Christ" (1988) (the role of Pontius Pilate), "Basquiat" (1996) (the role of Andy Warhol), etc.
