Fans pay tribute to David Bowie in Brixton

Directed by Muppets-creator Jim Henson, the 1986 fantasy stars Jennifer Connelly as a young girl tasked with navigating the eponymous labyrinth of the Goblin King Jareth (Bowie), or risk her infant half-brother turning into a goblin after thirteen hours have passed.

With a week having passed since his death, pausing to relive one of the music legend's most iconic and jubilant cinematic roles stands as a touching farewell to a man whose creativity and individuality was truly beloved by the world.
