|THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH
Nicolas Roeg│UK│1976│139 mins│HD│ R18
'Thomas Newton' falls like an apple to earth. His diaphanous being has taken the form of David Bowie, androgynous earthling of the orange hair, pale skin, sad eyes. With a business partner, the alien establishes World Enterprises, an empire of images, in order to finance his journey home. The New Yorker’s Anthony Lane wrote of the re-release, 'Time has done nothing to reduce its cool, confounding strangeness. Here is a sci-fi movie dedicated to the notion that no planet, anywhere else in the galaxy, would look half as freakish as our own would to the inquiring visitor.' - Brooklyn Art Museum
