The sole confirmation of aliens walking among us, David Bowie, stars as an extraterrestrial visitor from a dry planet who discovers the only resource more valuable than water is money. Assuming the identity of “Thomas Jerome Newton,” he learns the American way is greed, amasses a fortune, and finds himself homesick, yet unable to return from this strange new land. Part scathing satire, part low-key sci-fi, and all-around visual extravaganza with just a touch of Western, Nicolas Roeg crafts an otherworldly existential struggle against earthly delights.
