This stylish cult favorite stars David Bowie (in his feature debut) as the exotic and mysterious Thomas Jerome Newton – an extraterrestrial hoping to save his drought-ravaged planet. With his advanced technology, Newton easily amasses wealth and power, but he has considerably more trouble dealing with human desires and fears. Enigmatic and stunningly beautiful, this is one of the most distinctive sci-fi films of the 1970s, directed by British filmmaker Nicolas Roeg. Costarring Rip Torn, Candy Clark and Buck Henry.
