When Nicolas Roeg departed this earth at the end of November at the age of ninety, the British iconoclast left behind a handful of extraordinary and strange cinematic gems that were not easy to sell.
But they did have a profound influence on ardent fans like Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, and Steven Soderbergh. Mick Jagger plays the leading role in the psychedelic film Performance, David Bowie is otherworldly in The Man Who Fell to Earth, and in the terrifying romantic drama Bad Timing, even the kindly Art Garfunkel goes off the rails. Do look now.
