Film Series: The Man Who Fell to Earth

1976. UK. Dir: Nicholas Roeg. With David Bowie, Rip Torn. 139 min.

“You know Tommy, you’re a freak. I don’t mean that unkindly. I like freaks.” It’s the role Bowie was born to play: a starman seeking to save his home planet from extinction, yet finding only alienation in our world. The late singer’s unearthly performance is matched by psychedelic visuals courtesy of WALKABOUT’s Roeg.
