'Man Who Fell to Earth' featured at Gables Cinema
Stunning imagery and a profound, multidimensional story secures David Bowie's first major film role. This is a a one-night-only special screening.
From the Art Cinema release: "David's first film as an actor turned out to be his finest, Nicolas Roeg’s cult film about an extraterrestrial who crash lands on Earth seeking a way to ship water to his planet, which is suffering from a severe drought. In his appreciation, Variety’s executive editor Steven Gaydos writes: 'Bowie accomplished a feat that eluded Elvis and many other pantheon rockers who attempted to crossover from rock stardom to films and starred in a movie that has endured as a legitimate work of art.' Almost completely dismissed when originally released, today it’s easy to see its outstanding virtues as a groundbreaking sci-fi film and to deem Roeg’s telling as timeless. It was also enduring for Bowie, who culled material from the source novel for his last major theatrical piece, 'Lazarus', which premiered last year.
