PART OF THE GUILD’S EIGHT DAYS OF SCI-FI SOLSTICE !!

SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR FRIENDS AT BUBONICON 44 !!

A stimulating, hypnotic and fascinating adaptation of the science fiction novel by Walter Tevis by visionary director/cinematographer Nicholas Roeg!  Look for scenes shot right in downtown Albuquerque, at White Sands and several other various New Mexico locations!

David Bowie plays the alien of the title, who arrives on Earth with hopes of finding a way to save his own planet from turning into an arid wasteland. He funds this effort by capitalizing on several highly lucrative inventions, and in so doing becomes the powerful leader of an international corporate conglomerate. But his success has negative consequences as well–his contact with Earth has a disintegrating effect that sends him into a tailspin of disorientation and metaphysical despair. The sexual attention of a cheerful young woman (Candy Clark) doesn’t do much to change his outlook, and his introduction to liquor proves even more devastating, until, finally, it looks as though his visit to Earth may be a permanent one.

“The most intellectually provocative genre film of the 1970s.” – Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
