Nicolas Roeg’s iconic science fiction odyssey, ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’, this cult classic originally made in 1976 has been stunningly restored in 4K.
Featuring a startling and era defining lead performance from David Bowie in his debut feature role, and based on the cult novel by Walter Tevis, ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ endures as, not only a bitingly caustic indictment of the modern world but, also, a poignant commentary on the loneliness of the outsider. Thomas Jerome Newton (Bowie) is a humanoid alien who comes to Earth from a distant planet on a mission to take water back to his home planet in the midst of a catastrophic drought. Using the advanced technology of his home planet to patent many inventions on Earth, Newton acquires incredible wealth as the head of a technology-based conglomerate which he intends to use to finance the construction of a space vehicle to ship water back to his planet.
