Crash landing on Earth from his dying planet, an alien humanoid traveling by the name Thomas Jerome Newton (David Bowie) uses his superior intelligence to build a vast business empire. As he takes on, and beats, every US corporation people can only guess his true purpose: to save his dying world from agonizing death from drought. Newton’s ageless fall from grace, as he becomes prey to lust, alcohol, business rivals and the US Government makes The Man Who Fell To Earth not only a bitingly caustic indictment of the modern world but also a poignant commentary on the loneliness of an outsider.

Downbeat approach to scifi
No real winners in this but maybe that's the point. A very talked about film. Skillfully made but not to everyone's taste.
