just watched the man who fell to earth on netflix and noticed john pillips was responsible for the sound track.
i was an art student at a university in north texas when it was originally released. i remember a young guy with a new style bowie hair cut at a glasses store at valley view mall getting fitted for a similar pair (with photochromic, light adjusting lenses) to those bowie wore in this film. i dont think theyve improved them since then. you could choose from clear to half dark or half dark to super dark. in the film they could go from clear to full black. its a great soundtrack though.
i also enjoyed the contrast of 70's southwestern life with futurism in the film. im generally not too interested in sci-fi otherwise.
