The Man Who Fell To Earth

David Bowie plays Thomas Jerome Newton, a humanoid alien who comes to Earth seeking a way to ship back water to his home planet which is experiencing a terrible drought.

Newton uses advanced technology from his home planet to patent many inventions on earth, and rises as the head of a technology-based conglomerate to incredible wealth. This wealth is needed to construct his own space vehicle program. Along the way he meets Mary-Lou, a girl who falls in love with him. However, he does not count on the greed and ruthlessness of big business, and ultimately fails in his mission to save his dying planet, ending up trapped on earth; broken, lonely, and embittered.

" The Man Who Fell to Earth is definitely not for every taste--it's a highly contemplative, primarily visual experience that Roeg directs as an abstract treatise on (among other things) the alienating effects of an over-commercialized society. Stimulating and hypnotic or frightfully dull, depending on your receptiveness to its loosely knit ideas, it's at least in part about not belonging, about being disconnected from the world--about being a stranger in a strange land when there's really no place like home." Jeff Shannon
