Directed by Nicolas Roeg | 1976

With David Bowie, Rip Torn, Candy Clark

"Bowie, slender, elegant, remote, evokes this alien so successfully that one could say, without irony, this was a role he was born to play."
—Roger Ebert

Soundcheck host John Schaefer joins philosopher Simon Critchley (author of the recently published book Bowie) for a conversation about the film that made David Bowie a screen icon. A human-like alien (played by alien-like human Bowie) crash lands on Earth to retrieve water for his planet, but instead discovers pain, loneliness, and the sick soul of American society. Nicolas Roeg’s science-fiction mind-bender is a provocative parable about diseased capitalism in a television-obsessed culture told in a swirl of hallucinatory imagery.
