    1. Like the original promo for the 1976 film, this book doesn t mind misleading you into the assumption that it s VERY The Bowie heavy with content And of course, like the movie, he s very present in both, but his Bowieness is not Which isn t a criticism No, it just takes a bit to realize that you have to readjust your reading specs and focus that this is a well researched book on the machinations of the movie I felt like it should have had a big photo of Nicolas Roeg on the cover But like you, I d [...]

    2. Not just another Bowie bio, this book focuses on his iconic acting role and the making of Nicolas Roeg s strange, difficult, fascinating film, based on the novel by Walter Tevis Not particularly profound, but chock full of anecdotes, gossip, and trivia on the subject, including a list of shooting locations for various scenes.

    3. Strictly for people who are big fans of the movie and have seen it multiple timesbut if you fall into that category, you ll love it I reviewed Earthbound for The Current.
