David Bowie The Man Who Fell To Earth
Haunting, hallucinatory, and with a mesmerizing lead role performance from David Bowie, The Man Who Fell to Earth is a cult piece of science fiction film.
First advertised as a “mind-stretching experience,” Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 The Man Who Fell to Earth stunned the cinema world. A tour-de-force of science fiction as art form, the movie brought not only hallucinatory visuals and a haunting exploration of contemporary alienation, but also glam-rock legend Bowie in his lead role debut as paranoid alien Newton.
TASCHEN’s The Man Who Fell to Earth gathers together a bumper collection of stills and behind-the-scenes images by unit photographer David James, including numerous shots of Bowie at his playful and ambiguous best.
A fresh introductory essay explores the shooting of the film and its lasting impact, drawing upon an exclusive interview with David James, who brings first-hand insights into the making of this sci-fi masterwork.
