David Bowie is Thomas Jerome Newton, a highly intelligent alien who finds himself trapped on our planet.
As earthly vices of sex, money and alcohol take hold, the US Government closes in.
Like Bowie himself, this film is a beautiful, captivating and iconic space oddity.
A beautiful 4K restoration of this bold and imaginative cult sci-fi classic from director Nicolas Roeg (Don't Look Now), adapted from Walter Tevis’s acclaimed novel.
Showing as part ofVisions of Time: The Films of Nicolas Roeg.
