Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
It may be time to stop calling Nicolas Roeg's sexed-up sci-fi film that vaguely demeaning term - a cult classic - and start addressing it as what it is: the most intellectually provocative genre film of the 1970s. Full Review
Nick Pinkerton
Village Voice
Undeniably long, Panavision-wide, but of questionable depth. Full Review
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
Bowie, slender, elegant, remote, evokes this alien so successfully that one could say, without irony, this was a role he was born to play. Full Review
Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer
It's not just the grainy stock and bad sound - technically, we've come a long way. It's the cheesy sex, the awkward edits, the hammy symbolism, the mix of art-house aesthetics and exploitation cliché. Strange creature, this is. Full Review
