Beautiful work... I haven't watched the 'man who fell to earth' as I hear it's sad (I'm not very good with sad), and my mother wont let it in the house (she thought it was terrible, but we have very different tastes in movies, so nya)... but this makes me want to watch it so badly! He looks so beautiful here!
I watched it! Wow, I'm only 14, so there was a lot in there that I probably shouldn't have seen - but it was beautiful. I see why my mum didn't like it, as she doesn't like slow-moving arty films (she's an action woman!) but I think it was done beautifully. And it was sad, but as you said, it's the kind of sad that makes you want to cuddle him and make him feel better. Not the kind that has you in tears as well. AND MY GOD IS HE PRETTY!! Worth it just to see a red-head, skinny, pale skinned, alien nerd look sexy... quite a feat, I must say!
Ohh, I'm glad you saw it! It's fantastic, isn't it? I think you really have to be a fan of that style of film and/or Bowie's face to properly enjoy it, but if that works for you it's perfect. I notice new things every time I watch it. AND YES I just want to hug him. Forever.
Heehee, it truly is. Honestly, I'm not a fan of that style of film, as I found it quite similar to Gone With the Wind (in which I felt physical pain watching)... but it was simply beautiful. Never seen a sci-fi that was actually beautiful
Forever... not love at all~! (<-- why yes, I do quote that when anyone says 'forever') I think I'd love to cuggle him for all eternity. Wow I sound stalkerish!
Haaa, I read your journal XD You must've had a heart attack of sorts. In a couple of months I'm gonna cut and dye my hair all Ziggy Stardust style; here's hoping I turn into a Pied Piper for Bowie-stalkers. ;D
A lovely piece. I think "The Man Who Fell to Earth" is a good film too, but it is too sad for me to rewatch it. To see something so beautiful as what you have depicted here treated so heartlessly, broken so completely...it splits my heart in two.
Oooh, I had a look Wonderful group! Damn straight, the emo Anthean deserves his own group. And hugs.
I'm just reading the book at the moment, actually. Apart from the fact that in my mind Newton will forever be pale with orange hair, I think I like it even more than the film so far. Which I did NOT expect. Have you read it?
