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.

Film Series: Labyrinth

1986. USA. Dir: Jim Henson. With Jennifer Connelly, David Bowie. 101 min.

Young Sarah ventures into a fantastical labyrinth to rescue her baby half-brother after unwittingly wishing him into the clutches of the enigmatic Goblin King. Puppets by Henson’s Creature Shop and a truly groovy Bowie-composed score make this fantasy a weirdly wonderful gem, complete with psychosexual undertones and very high-waisted pants.

That’s right, it’s snowing.

Go out and build a snowman! Or if that’s no longer your style, get nostalgic about the good ol’ days when it was. This movie ought to help:

This BBC4 classic will probably look mighty familiar to anyone who grew up in the UK, by the way.
