We kick off sci-fi December with a look at Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976). Based on the book by Walter Tevis, the film stars David Bowie as Thomas Jerome Newton, a strange man who appears in the office of a patent attorney with some big ideas that help him start on the road to untold wealth. Along the way he meets colorful characters such as Candy Clark as Mary Lou, a hotel worker, and Rip Torn, as Professor Bryce, a lascivious pedagogue. <br /><br />Samm Deighan and Skizz Cyzyk join Mike to discuss the film. Interviews include Candy Clark, Sam Umland and Susan Compo.
