Tony Scott new  

“The least likely [performance] I gave - I hope, anyway - is The Hunger. I never felt comfortable in that one, although I loved being in a Tony Scott movie.”

David Bowie, 1987

"I loved Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth. One director I've always looked up to, and stolen from, is Nic Roeg. The Hunger was a total rip-off of Performance. I showed Nic and he said, 'As long as you do a good job, my boy, I don't care.' He loves it. Well, he told me he loved it when we'd had a couple of drinks."

Tony Scott, Uncut #90, November 2004

“For me it was a terrifying experience, it being my first movie, and being intimidated by stars, David Bowie being a huge star at that time in England…I met David and Catherine Deneuve separately, and I think David had some misgivings about the screenplay, and I think in the end he had some misgivings a little bit about the final movie, he thought it might be a little too self-conscious, and he might be right…But in the end he trusted, and jumped aboard.”

“David has that sort of - what’s the word - ethereal quality to him in terms of…The Man Who Fell To Earth was a perfect movie for David ’cause he is the man who fell to earth. He is that strange alien creature from another planet…David was obviously an infamous rock ‘n’ roller and not really at this point famous for his acting, but I think he did a really strong job with this particular character. It’s a dangerous role because it could have been over-melodramatic and somehow David managed to sit on it and hold it down.”

“This particular sequence, where Catherine has to french-kiss David with all this make-up on was not very pleasant, but it was amazing how…That make-up’s fantastic. It was so sad. You had so much empathy for David’s character.”

“David’s body language was fantastic, in terms of his movement, as the old man…He’d just done The Elephant Man on stage, and John Hurt had done it in the movie, so David was flexing his muscles in terms of theatre acting.”

“David’s extraordinary, ’cause he’s a timeless, ethereal human being. I love what he does in terms of his music because he’s always reaching, always desperately reaching for new territory, new turf, he never stands still. So he never says, ‘That last album was really successful, so I can springboard off that into something similar.’ He always surprises you, in terms of what he does with his music, and the places he takes you to.”
