First Torchwood on the big screen, and now this?!?!

I own The Man Who Fell to Earth on VHS, DVD and laserdisc and I have seen the uncut version many times. Uncut in more ways than one, hahahaha. ANYWAY. The uncut version will be playing on the big screen in Atlanta in September!

I love TMWFTE on so many levels. Being a film geek, as a gorgeous piece of avant-garde art. As the apogee of 1970s fashion aesthetics (and I am not being sarcastic there). As a Bowie fan. For the philosophy and the portrayal of alienation. For the information overload television scene. For the terrifying atavistic slime sex. For the amazing, joyous gun sex.

This could be one my favorite movie ever. It's right up there with Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, Fellini Satyricon, Jodorowsky, Herzog, Tsui Hark. I've seen other Roeg movies and lots of other Bowie movies but this is the best. Seriously, I'm just about to get up from my laptop and do a little dance, that's how happy I am.

Ep 2 tonight as well! Woo hoo!

Haha! Yeah, I was pretty chuffed to see that as well.

I just wish I could see it as well ;)

Sorry it's not international! But if you haven't seen it, you should definitely try tracking down the Criterion version.

Oh I have it on dvd and vhs ;) I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Usually I watch it once a year, just to refresh my memory.

That sounds great!

Gosh, I saw it such a long time ago, and I don't think I even saw the entire film. I'll have to watch it again.

It used to be available in the US only in drastically cut version... with no naked Bowie :P If you saw that, you'd remember it!

Dood, I think I was about 12 so.

Yes, I would have remembered that!

You need an Unexpected Naked David Bowie icon, also.
