Uncut 35th Anniversary Edition
David Bowie stars as an alien who visits Earth to find a cure for his dying race on another planet. Shortly after he arrives, the alien hires an attorney (Buck Henry) to patent ten groundbreaking inventions. The alien is homesick and devises his own space program to return home, but his plans are sabotaged by jealousy, suspicion, and greed. This new 35mm print of the uncut director’s version allows viewers to experience the dazzling visuals of director Nicholas Roeg—whom Pauline Kael called “the most visually seductive of directors”—as they were meant to be seen.
“Dazzling! Time has done nothing to reduce its cool, confounding strangeness!” —New Yorker
