The Man Who Fell To Earth

Description
Space alien crash lands on Earth, seeking help for his drought-stricken planet. He starts a high technology company to get the billions of dollars he needs to build a return spacecraft, and meets Mary-Lou, a girl who falls in love with him. The question of course is whether Newton will ever get to return home.

A freaky, compelling concept album of a film.

Nicolas Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth features a fine performance from David Bowie and a gorgeous production design, but the story is ultimately a choppy, unfocused, and meandering mess that results in a cold and distant film.

The Man Who Fell to Earth today plays like a movie that fell from the sky, origins unknown.

The film is a more poignant (and infinitely bleaker) portrait of extraterrestrial homesickness than "E.T."

Nicolas Roeg's mid-'70s sci-fi misfire about an alien (Bowie) trying to save his planet but falling prey to Earth's temptations is self-indulgent garble with a haunting premise.

If you're looking for a gripping narrative then look elsewhere; enjoy the B-movie effects and crash zooms, melodramatic acting, eclectic soundtrack, Hockney-esque visuals and Bowie's effortless charisma instead.

Bowie's screen debut still fascinates whenever he's on-screen, and it's full of little reminders of how much has changed since the movie was made.

The real story is less about the sci-fi and more about the weirdness on Earth, a woozy dream of greed and alcohol and betrayal, as the gentle Newton is preyed upon by hucksters and the American government.

Roeg's exuberance and invention are compromised here by a yarn that carries dank traces of Twilight Zone.

Feels like a tedious historical artifact. It's a sci-fi "Days of Wine and Roses" for the arthouse crowd.
