Only using iconography and type, for pictures and or screen shots are not allowed to be used within this project. Overall besic compositions to have fun with at the end of the semester.

SENTING RY Out of the seven cult classic films, I chose the film featuring David Bowie called The Man Who Fell To Earth. A film by Nicolas Roeg and based on a novel by Walter Tevis. The movie itself is a science fiction in an art form from the 1970s. It’s about a story of an alien who comes to earth for a rescue mission to launch a ship to the home planet with water, but gets caught in a twisting end.

Inside Right The  Man  Who  Fell  to  Earth is a daring exploration of science fiction as an art form. The story of an alien on an elaborate rescue mission provides the launching pad for Nicolas Roeg’s visual tour de force, a formally adventurous examination of alienation in contemporary life. Rock legend David Bowie, in his acting debut, completely embodies the title role, while Candy Clark, Buck Henry, and Rip Torn turn in pitch-‐perfect supporting performances. The film’s hallucinatory vision was obscured in the American theatrical release, which deleted nearly twenty minutes of crucial scenes and details. The Criterion Collection is proud to present Roeg’s full uncut version, in this exclusive new director-‐approved high-‐definition widescreen transfer.

“There are quite a few science-fiction movies scheduled to come out in the next year or so. We shall be lucky if even one or two are as absorbing and as beautiful as The Man Who Fell to Earth.”

“The film is a more poignant (and infinitely bleaker) portrait of extraterrestrial homesickness than ‘E.T.’” -Variety “Establishes [its] British director as one of the most talented and imaginative new filmmakers in this part of the world. It's a demanding effort which will provide a challenge.” - Dallas Morning News

“The Man Who Fell to Earth today plays like a movie that fell from the sky, origins unknown.”

“By turns, creepy and cheesy, literate and vapid.”
