The Man Who Fell To Earth

The Man Who Fell To EarthBBB.5

(out of 5)


Watch this excellent science-fiction film, but don’t expect to be let off easy.  plays an alien (hardly any makeup required, ha ha) who finds himself trapped on Earth after he arrives on a mission to bring water back to his dying planet. The visuals of his world are exceptionally memorable, as is the drama that unfolds on Bowie’s journey.   plays the love interest, and though she’s charming for a while, she’s more than a bit grating by the film’s conclusion. Completely original filmmaking that is to be admired.
