David Bowie leads this cult classic sci-fi from director Nicolas Roeg (Don't Look Now) as Thomas Jerome Newton, a humanoid alien from a dying planet in desperate need of water. On Earth, he builds a billion-dollar tech company in order to fund a spacecraft back to his home, but is not swayed by the greed that comes with big business.

It's a demanding effort which will provide a challenge.

The most intellectually provocative genre film of the 1970s.

Feels like a tedious historical artifact. It's a sci-fi "Days of Wine and Roses" for the arthouse crowd.

There are quite a few science-fiction movies scheduled to come out in the next year or so. We shall be lucky if even one or two are as absorbing and as beautiful as The Man Who Fell to Earth.

A little dated bit Nic Roeg is always good value and David Bowie is perfectly cast.
