Description

This remastered version of the director’s cut allows Nicholas Roeg’s dazzling visuals to be seen as they were meant to be. After a space-craft seemingly crashes to Earth, David Bowie walks off to sell a ring for twenty bucks in a dusty Southwestern town, then almost immediately hires high-priced, thick-spectacled patent attorney to register ten world-changing patents. Orange-haired, pale-faced, minimally expressioned Bowie desperately yearns to return himself and water to his parched planet — but will the authorities let him? — with coed-shtupping professor Rip Torn providing technical help, and chambermaid Candy Clark providing distractions via overdoses of very terrestrial booze, church, sex, and television. Roeg’s science fiction cult classic/cautionary moral tale is an assault of fragmented, non-linear narrative style, typically striking visuals, echt 70s soundtrack by John Phillips of The Mamas and Papas. 2 hrs 20 mins, rated NR
