Roeg had started working on prestige films but in the middle of the '60s, he worked on a number of British films with UsefulNotes/FrenchNewWave inspired directors, chiefly Creator/JohnSchlesinger, and Richard Lester, in addition to working on Creator/FrancoisTruffaut's only English-language film (''Fahrenheit 451''). Over the years he'd developed his own ideas about film being a unique medium, and the possibilities of using images, sounds and editing to tell stories in a new, provocative way. When it came time to apply those ideas as a director, the result was some of the most radical work ever released by mainstream studios, many of them experimental with narrative, and time, shooting sequences with flash-backs and flash-forwards intervowen together, and challenging a great many narrative and visual conventions.

* CreatorKiller: He never totally recovered from ''Eureka'', which sat on [[TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment the shelf]] for a couple years, had a brief release with [[BoxOfficeBomb very little box office]], and got mixed reviews. The film has some latter-day admirers, though, like Creator/DannyBoyle.

* ExecutiveMeddling: A frequent victim, with films ending up on TheShelfOfMovieLanguishment (''Film/{{Performance}}'', ''Eureka'') and films suffering BadExportForYou via edits to their American releases (''Film/{{Walkabout}}'', ''Film/TheManWhoFellToEarth'').

Nicolas Roeg (born 15 August 1928) is a British film director.


Roeg had started working on prestige films but in the middle of the '60s, he worked on a number of British films with UsefulNotes/FrenchNewWave inspired directors, chiefly John Schlesinger, and Richard Lester, in addition to working on Creator/FrancoisTruffaut's only English-language film (''Fahrenheit 451''). Over the years he'd developed his own ideas about film being a unique medium, and the possibilities of using images, sounds and editing to tell stories in a new, provocative way.

As you'd expect from a former cinematogapher, Roeg's films are visually striking, but have so much going on they can be very disorienting; note how often MindScrew gets mentioned in the pages for his films. To say his films are an [[LoveItOrHateIt acquired taste]] is an understatement, but once you get used to his odd style, it's easy to see his talent. His early films are frequently considered to be among the best of TheSeventies. His later career was much less consistent. He was a considerable influence on independent film-makers from TheSeventies and TheEighties onwards, including Creator/StevenSoderbergh (his ''Film/OutOfSight'' homaged the famous sex scene from ''Don't Look Now'') as well as creators in other mediums such as Creator/AlanMoore.

* SignatureStyle: Non-standard plots (often becoming a RandomEventsPlot or KudzuPlot). Alternating between carefully composed shots and {{Montages}}. Frequent use of FlashBack and FlashForward (visual ''and'' audio). Quick cutting (even down to a only a few frames for a shot). Frank depictions of sex and violence.
