Format: DVD
This movie is very complex and non-linear. The viewer has to pay close attention to what is going on. But one shouldn't panic at the first sign of confusion. Hang on and challenge yourself to last through the movie. You may not feel satisfied by the movie, but you will think about it. Whether you end up liking the movie or not, it will effect you. That makes it the great movie that it is. I'm not sure whether I like it or not, but I'm glad I watched it. And I think about it and I'm still confused by some aspects of it. It needs a few views to be understood. But I'm not straining too hard to understand everything, because being confused and disoriented while watching a movie is a good thing. I don't really care if I don't know what's going on all the time. It makes for a very unpredictable experience. Too many movies today are so predictable, this one is not. The crude sexual scenes add to the reality of the movie. This is a REAL sci-fi movie. What I mean by REAL, is that the movie is about an alien and outerspace. But one wouldn't really know it until about half way through the movie. The true nature of the picture is hidden behind a well written movie about human life. Then when the sci-fi aspect unfolds, it has a great impact. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for a challenge.

There seem to be two kind of opinions about this movie. One: it's a great, fascinating, if slightly weird film. Two: It's boring, meaningless and why did anyone bother to make it? Actually, I found more reviews of the latter kind, and almost didn't buy it. Luckily, I couldn't resist. And I think "The Man Who Fell To Earth" is gorgous, if slightly weird. It is hard to get into and it is indeed long and sort of complicated. Than again, what's so bad with a movie you actually have to think about? Because that is what this film will do, it'll force you to think. And you do need to have a mind to think with, really.
"The Man Who Fell To Earth" is a movie so far away from anything mainstream that it just can't apply to many. I found it wonderful, there are so few really good movies out there, and this is one of them.

Format: DVD
Many may call it dull and disjointed, too abstract or just give it a pass, since they haven't heard of it anyway! But they'd be missing a great movie, a unique and intellectual work of art. And that it is. I myself have never been much of a sci-fi fan so I don't particularly enjoy movies about space when they're too complicated and technical, but THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH is written in such a simple, but meaningful way- unlike most films nowadays- that makes it ageless, even after 30 years it cannot be considered outdated. Another thing I admire about it is a certain touchy feeling it has; it's hard to explain as it's so surreal, something out of this world! The first time I saw it, I was left with a sense of confusion and melancholy even, without consciously knowing why. I can't rally say I completely understand it to this day because there are so many hidden messages and feelings that make each time I watch it a whole new experience!
Despite my being a Bowie (super-) fan, I think everyone looking for a new experience in an interesting, smart and thought provoking, non-linear film should definitely buy the special edition DVD! It's worth every penny because it's a movie you can't just watch once, the VHS edition does not do it justice and the 2nd disc offers a very interesting and helpful 'Watching The Alien' documentary!

This is one of those films that is best watched in the dark, by yourself, because sometimes, you just might want to shout out "WHAT?"
Basically this movie is a great cult classic about an alien who comes to our planet in search of water for his desert planet. David Bowie... how do you rate his performance with that of other conventional actors? You can't. He is brilliant in his role as Mr. Newton! I was completely mesmerized and even attracted to him as the thin redhead. I was surprised however that he was completely unclothed in one scene, but hey, it didn't hurt any part of the movie!
I would recomend this to anyone, period. I give the movie a 5, but Bowie's performance gets a 10!

I never went into thi film expecting anything that
conventional,considering David Bowie stars in it.But it is a
socially relevant science fiction movie about an alien who comes
to Earth in search of water to aid his draught-ridden planet and
in the process get's caught up in the corrupt politics of human
culture.In the end he basically forgets why he came to Earth to
start with after falling in love and becoming owner of a big
cooperation.The overall message-if aliens arn't visiting this
planet there's a REASON!The movie uses stark settings and is
shot very surreally so it isn't for those without the most
open mind to avante-garde film making.Bowie,having already had
mime and theatre experience (and being the dramatic Ziggy Stardust of course) is brilliant as an actor and it is all too
believable that he doesn't come from Earth (I wonder if Bowie
really IS an alien sometimes anyway).But for those who can make
their mind and visual spectrum stretch and who don't mind a sadly
ironic ending you will enjoy this film.
