Nicolas Roeg: The man who fell from earth



I read the Walter Tevis novel in 1963, when it first came out, because I’d been so impressed with The Hustler. It was several years later that I became aware of Bowie, when he introduced Ziggy. I said to my brother, and he agreed, that Bowie would be perfect if there was ever a movie of TMWFTE.

And so it was.
