Friday Night Freak Show – The Man Who Fell To Earth (our yearly Bowie tribute)
WMSE 91.7FM and the Times Cinema are teaming up to bring you a 4K Restoration of THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, in tribute to the late great David Bowie on the 3 year anniversary of his untimely death. DJ Haven spins at 8PM. Film at 9PM. All tickets are $5.
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 initial American theatrical release, which deleted nearly twenty minutes of crucial scenes and details. We’re presenting Roeg’s full uncut version.
