Personal Quote:

[on Stanley Kubrick] I must say I did like his attitude towards film and the fact that he was an artist and complete unto himself. He wasn't under corporate censorship, and he was never trying to make a film that you'd be able to pigeonhole in any particular genre. I think that was the case with all his films. 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 »
