Bowie Plays Christ Figure In New Video

David Bowie doesn’t stint on A-list talent: after starring opposite Tilda Swinton in his last video, for “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” the rocker features Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman in his new clip for “The Next Day.” (Watch here.) The video opens with a priest played by Oldman punching a street-urchin beggar in the face, then continuing into a club filled with clergy engaging in un-priestly activity. A Christ-like Bowie sings from a stage while scantily clad women dance suggestively – until one of them, played by Cotillard, develops stigmata, bringing the party to a sudden, bloody halt.
