They didn't even know he was sick when he refused the offer. It was only when he died they found out the reason for his refusal. Same with Twin Peaks.

So basically they wanted to cast him because he was Bowie.
Not sure if pervert or cheesecake expert.

Yep. Maybe his stunt-casting would've worked, for once. All down to the context.

Bowie was solid in Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence.

He was perfectly fine. As he was in everything I've seen him but Bowie the actor wasn't ever good enough to make me forget I was watching someone other than David Bowie.

Smarter people than me will have had their say and most of what I thought has already been covered in this thread. I thought it was a brilliant movie, sound and cinematography were both top end, everything was excellent. Fantastic sequel that built on rather than retread the original. Denis Villeneuve keeps killing it, after this, Arrival and Sicario I can't wait to see his Dune movie. Loved the novel, wasn't too keen on the previous adaptation.

Hope this isn't off topic, but has anyone read Dick's The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch?

 I've seen in book shops. Any good?

It's not one of the absolute classics, but all late period PKD is worth reading.
