The Wexner Center screens a slew of impressive films every year that often fly under the radar. So here’s one for your radar: Tonight (7pm) and Friday (7:30pm) the Wex is screening the cult classic David Bowie film The Man Who Feel to Earth. From the website:
A cult film if ever there was one, The Man Who Fell to Earth stars David Bowie as an alien who arrives on Earth seeking water for his drought-stricken planet. His advanced mind eventually proves no match for the lure of such terrestrial pleasures as booze and television. Nicolas Roeg’s Earth-bound space opera favors emotion, performance, and design over the special effects that would come to dominate the sci-fi genre soon after the film’s release. Rip Torn, Candy Clark, and Buck Henry also star.
