The Man Who Fell to Earth
Dir. Nicolas Roeg. 1976, 139 mins. Restored DCP. With David Bowie, Rip Torn, Candy Clark. Nicolas Roeg’s audacious cult classic, with David Bowie perfectly cast as the alien visitor who lands in the American West with a British passport, was described by critic Graham Fuller as a “science-fiction drama, western, love story, metaphysical mystery, satire of modern America, and the most beguiling of films.”
