Cult/Occult: The Man Who Fell to Earth

B-Movie effects, melodramatic acting, eclectic soundtrack and Bowie’s effortless charisma.  Space alien (Bowie) crash lands on Earth, seeking help for his drought-stricken planet. By securing patents to advanced technology, he becomes a fabulously wealthy industrialist. However, money and its attendant decadence ultimately exert a stronger gravitational pull. Bowie seemed perfectly cast as the space traveler, and the film further cemented director Roeg’s status as one of the most unique filmmakers of the 1970s. 

Preceded by Le Voyage Danes La Lune 1902, George Méliès 14min
