While we love Labyrinth as much as the next nerd, there was a lot more to David Bowie’s acting career than his muppet-filled fantasy romp. The late icon’s greatest role may have been that of an alien trapped on our planet and corrupted by the decadence of the 1970s in Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth. Here’s our review of the film’s new Blu-ray.
