Personal Quote:

I can't think how anyone can become a director without learning the craft of cinematography. I was very glad later when I was directing that I wasn't in the hands of a cinematographer and hoping that he would do it well. I would know what he was doing, and we could discuss how that scene would look. It was just lucky in a way that I didn't go to film school and just learned all this on the floor. See more »

Trivia:

The band Big Audio Dynamite paid tribute to Roeg on the song "E=MC2" on their first album, "This is Big Audio Dynamite". The song is filled with imagery from his movies, including descriptive snippets of Performance (1970), Don't Look Now (1973), The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) and Insignificance (1985). See more »
