Review
A truly mesmerising adaptation of Walter Tevis's sci-fi tale, and, whatever your opinion of David Bowie's acting skills, few could deny that nobody, but nobody, could fill this role so flawlessly. Newton is an alien, sent to Earth on a mission to save his own race, whose knowledge of the world is derived solely from monitoring TV broadcasts. Newton begins an all-too-obviously doomed romance with a besotted Candy Clark, the archetypal all-American girl, but the love affair turns sour as Newton's extraterrestrial financial genius brings him closer to world domination and a return to loved ones in another universe.
