內容簡介


英國華麗搖滾歌手大衛.鮑伊化身外星人,前衛、大膽的表現,使得已成為經典科幻電影的《天外來客》(The Man Who Fell to Earth)更加耀眼。

英國導演尼可拉斯.羅格以「擴展心靈體驗」為電影《天外來客》宣傳,這樣的口號並非妄言,因為這部電影一問世便震驚了整個電影界。他將科幻小說傑出地轉化成表演藝術的形式,電影所帶來的幻象以及探索當代的疏離感,還有由大衛.鮑伊主演的偏執狂外星人”牛頓”,都令觀影者難以忘懷。

根據1963年的同名科幻小說改編而成的電影,以到地球尋找水源的外星人牛頓為開場,到他成為富有的實業家,利用原生星球先進的科技,還有他從年輕的瑪莉-露身上所喚起的性萌動,他外星人的身分被發現而鋃鐺入獄,最後成為酒鬼的歷程。導演不僅讓鮑伊飾演的外星旅人散發出光芒,配角們恰到好處的完美演出,使得這部非主流電影成為經典。

Taschen出版社紀念本片問世40周年,收錄劇照攝影師大衛.詹姆士所拍攝的大量定格照以及幕後影像,其中包括鮑伊許多笑鬧且迷離的照片。新收錄的導論探索本片拍攝的過程以及它的影響力,大衛.詹姆士的獨家採訪,為這部科幻經典的製作帶來第一手的觀察。

Loving the Alien
Behind the scenes of Nic Roeg’s 1976 sci-fi masterpiece starring David Bowie

First advertised as a “mind-stretching experience,” Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 The Man Who Fell to Earth stunned the cinema world. A tour-de-force of science fiction as art form, the movie brought not only hallucinatory visuals and a haunting exploration of contemporary alienation, but also glam-rock legend David Bowie in his lead role debut as paranoid alien Newton.

Based on Walter Tevis’s 1963 sci-fi fable of the same title, The Man Who Fell to Earth follows alien Newton from his arrival on earth in search of water; his transition to wealthy entrepreneur, leveraging the advanced technologies of his native planet; his sexual awakening with the young Mary-Lou; and then the discovery of his alien identity, his imprisonment, abandonment, and descent into alcoholism. Throughout, Roeg coaxed a beguiling performance from his cast, presenting not only Bowie in ethereal space-traveler glory, but also pitch-perfect supporting performances from Candy Clark, Rip Torn, and Buck Henry.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this cult movie, TASCHEN’s The Man Who Fell to Earth presents a plenitude of stills and behind-the-scenes images by unit photographer David James, including numerous shots of Bowie at his playful and ambiguous best. A new introductory essay explores the shooting of the film and it’s lasting impact, drawing upon an exclusive interview with David James, who brings firsthand insights into the making of this sci-fi masterwork.
