We celebrate the life and work of Nicolas Roeg, the iconoclastic and visionary filmmaker who died in November, at the age of 90.

Born in London in 1928, Roeg was a skilled cinematographer, working on the likes of Lawrence of Arabia and Fahrenheit 451, who moved into directing with the controversial Mick Jagger-starring Performance in 1968, an explosive film whose reputation has grown every year since release.

Performance began a run of classics as strong as any in cinema, including Walkabout (1971), in which two
schoolchildren are abandoned in the Australian outback.

Bad Timing (1980) – a lurid, controversial thriller in which Art Garfunkel stars as an American psychiatrist living in Vienna – and the Gene Hackman-starring murder mystery Eureka (1983) both flopped on release, but are now widely regarded as fellow masterpieces.
