"The Man Who Fell To Earth" may look like some cheesy science fiction B-movie, but it's really an analogy of the big business world of capitalism brought out by aesthetic and engaging filmmaking.

Unique and highly stylized movie on the literal and physical conception of alienation. THMWFTE could be construed by some to be baffling and pretentious but it remains a stunningly shot masterpiece and has a prophetically intelligent storyline that is still scarily relevant today. David Bowie excels in a role he was born to play and delivers a performance that is as surreal and inventive as the images and visualization realized on screen. Director Nicolas Roeg`s creative genius shines through and his inventive and mesmerizing camerawork enhance this cerebral Sci Fi classic

No need to say that David Bowie rocks. I've only seen him in Laberynth but in this movie he's awesome like an alien. I felt the film a little slow right by the ending, but it's worth just to see some images and cinematography; typical Nicolas Roeg, like some kind of "experiment".
