The Man Who Fell To Earth
Monday 4th April 2011
Released on Blu-Ray for the first time by Optimum Classic on 4th April 2011 and directed by Nic Roeg, Nic Roeg's science-fiction cult classic The Man Who Fell To Earth starring David Bowie celebrates its 35th Anniversary in 2011 as well as being included in the BFI Nic Roeg retrospective in March.
Crash landing on Earth from his dying planet, an alien humanoid traveling by the name of Thomas Jerome Newton (Bowie) uses his superior intelligence to build a vast business empire. As he takes on, and beats, every major US corporation, people can only guess his true purpose - to save his dying world from drought.
Newton's ageless fall from grace, as he becomes prey to lust, alcohol, business rivals and the US Government makes The Man Who Fell To Earth not only a bitingly caustic indictment of the modern world but also a poignant commentary on the loneliness of the outsider.
Also starring Candy Clark, Rip Torn and Buck Henry and based on the cult novel by Walter Tevis.
