Monday 22nd January 2007
The Man Who Fell To Earth, released as a two-disc special edition by Optimum Classics on 29th January 2007, is Nic Roeg's science-fiction cult classic starring David Bowie.
Crash landing on Earth from his dying planet, an alien humanoid travelling by the name of Thomas Jerome Newton uses his superior intelligence to build a vast business empire.
As he takes on, and beats, every US corporation people can only guess his true purpose - to save his dying world from agonising death by 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.
