Torrent description

Torrent From: http://cinemageddon.org/

The Man Who Fell to Earth is a 1976 science fiction film directed by Nicolas Roeg about an extraterrestrial who crash lands on Earth seeking a way to ship water to his planet, which is suffering from a severe drought. The film maintains a strong cult status for its strong use of surreal imagery and its performances by David Bowie (in his first starring film role), Candy Clark, and Hollywood veteran Rip Torn. The film was based on the 1963 novel of the same name by Walter Tevis and was later remade as a less-successful 1987 television adaptation.



David Bowie plays Thomas Jerome Newton, a humanoid alien who comes to Earth from a distant planet seeking a way to ship back water to his home planet which is experiencing a terrible drought.

Newton uses the advanced technology of his home planet to patent many inventions on Earth, and rises to incredible wealth as the head of a technology-based conglomerate, World Enterprises Corporation, aided by leading patent attorney Oliver V. Farnsworth. Secretly, this wealth is needed to construct his own space vehicle program in order to ship water back to his home planet.

While in New Mexico, he meets Mary-Lou (Candy Clark), a cute but lonely, unloved and relatively uneducated girl working as an elevator operator in a hotel. Soon, a love affair begins between the two, and Mary-Lou introduces Newton to many customs of Earth culture; amongst them church-going, fashion, alcohol, and eventually humanoid sex. However, his appetite for alcohol and television become crippling, slowly souring his relationship. His secret identity as an alien is also discovered by his intensely curious fuel technician Nathan Bryce (Rip Torn), one of Newton's few friends. He also reveals his true form as an alien to Mary-Lou, who is intensely shocked and unable to cope with his secret life.

Newton attempts to take the spaceship on its maiden voyage amongst a myriad of press exposure, but just before his scheduled take-off he is detained, apparently by the government, while operatives kill his key business partners including Farnsworth. The government, which has received the tip that he is an alien through Bryce, holds him captive in a luxury 'apartment' (constructed in an old warehouse) where they continuously send him through rigorous and inhumane tests, culminating in an X-ray of his eyes, which burns the contact lenses in his disguise onto his eyes permanently.

Towards the end of his captivity, he is visited again by Mary-Lou, now older and ugly, her once wholesomely pretty face and figure having been ravaged by the years, who, despite her now primarily sexual interests in Newton, ultimately realizes that the relationship between them has failed. When she leaves, Newton discovers that his 'prison' is unlocked and that the government evidently has no further interest in him, so he leaves.

Newton has ultimately failed in his mission to save his dying planet, ending up trapped on Earth; broken, lonely, and embittered. Without other options, he creates a recording with alien messages, which he hopes will be broadcast via radio to his home-planet to say goodbye. Nathan Bryce buys one of these recordings and decides to meet Newton, curious to know what was on the recording; Bryce is now showing signs of old age, but Newton is still young, however he is depressed, embittered, and drunken, trying with difficulty to remain stoic in the face of his defeat, no longer interested in trying to save his people.
