In this sci-fi drama David Bowie stars in his most iconic role as Thomas Jerome Newton, a humanoid alien who comes to Earth to get water for his dying planet, which is suffering from severed drought. As he starts a high technology company to fund the construction of his return spacecraft, he meets Mary-Lou, and a deep romance grows. Bowie’s performance and the film’s surreal imagery helped cement this film’s cult status; it also helped establish British director Nicolas Roeg as an director of great imagination and talent.
