Overview
FROM DIRECTOR NICOLAS ROEG, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH IS A SCIENCE-FICTION CULT CLASSIC STARRING DAVID BOWIE.

Crash landing on Earth from his dying planet, an alien humanoid travelling by the name of Thomas Jerome Newton (David Bowie) uses his superior intelligence to build a vast business empire. As he takes on, and beats, every US corporation people can only guess his true purpose: to save his dying world from agonising death by drought. Newton's ageless fall from grace, as he becomes prey to lust, alcohol, business rivals and finally, the US Government, makes The Man Who Fell to Earth not only a bitingly caustic indictment of the modern world but also a poignant commentary on the loneliness of an outsider.
