  Farewell Nicolas Roeg [read more]
  Cult director dies at 90
  Nicolas Roeg, the esteemed cinematographer who became one of Britain's most respected directors, has passed away, it has been announced. His talent for colour earned him much attention with the photography in films like Nothing But the Best, The Masque of the Red Death, Fahrenheit 451, Far from the Madding Crowd and Petulia, which he used as a basis for a directing career, starting with a collaboration with Donald Cammell on Performance. Its distinctive style, using fragmented time and allusive storytelling rather than spelling everything out, informed his work from then on, making his films a challenge for some, but a breath of fresh air for his fans.

Walkabout was next, followed by horror classic Don't Look Now, The Man Who Fell to Earth with David Bowie, Bad Timing, Eureka, Insignificance, Castaway, Track 29, Roald Dahl's The Witches, Two Deaths and Fay Weldon's Puffball, among other assignments including the 1980s AIDS awareness campaign. One of his wives was star Theresa Russell. Never one to resort to cliché, Roeg was one of the greats of cult filmmaking, especially in the 1970s.
