It has become a [[CultClassic cult favorite]] for featuring highly surreal, striking imagery, to say nothing of Bowie in his first starring role. Another thing this film is noted for is that it has a few '''very''' gratuitous sex scenes. It's a somewhat slow, thoughtful piece, and YMMV on how well it works out.
