p.m.

THE DEBT

This decade-spanning thriller involving Israeli agents and fugitive Nazis stars Helen Mirren, Ciarán Hinds, Tom Wilkinson, Jessica Chastain, and Sam Worthington.

THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH

Then mega rock star David Bowie plays the titular extra-terrestrial in director Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 instant cult classic, but how about a hand for Candy Clark? As the small-town waitress who takes up with Bowie’s alienated alien as he attempts to raise money to save his doomed home planet, Clark brings earthy, toothy energy to every scene she’s in. She’s also pretty much the only reason Earth doesn’t seem like a horrific, soul-destroying place by the time Roeg’s through with Bowie’s character, who, though rich and powerful, succumbs to the human vices of booze, TV, and ennui. Other than the costumes and the tech, this hasn’t dated a jot. (Lee Gardner)
