The Ringer
As a meditation on encroaching spiritual emptiness, set in a society hypnotized by materialism and mass media-Roeg's film is so rich and lucid that it could be an essay.

Kate Muir
Times (UK)
The real story is less about the sci-fi and more about the weirdness on Earth, a woozy dream of greed and alcohol and betrayal, as the gentle Newton is preyed upon by hucksters and the American government.

A freaky, compelling concept album of a film.
