Nicholas Roeg's eye, his cinematographer's sense, colors every frame of each film he directs. His futuristic masterpiece, The Man Who Fell to Earth, continues to amaze international audiences after 20 years. Here Roeg, David Bowie, and Buck Henry tell the definitive story of their groundbreaking collaboration.

"This disc version turns the film into a frequently wondrous romp, thanks to a host of supplemental features." -Robert Hilburn, The Los Angeles Times

Rock legend David Bowie makes his acting debut as an alien who comes to Earth for water to save his drought-stricken planet. Director Nicolas Roeg creates a fascinating, erotic sci-fi parable.
