Don't Look Now director Nicolas Roeg passes away at age 90

As reported by Deadline, on Friday night film director Nicolas Roeg passed away at age 90 for undisclosed reasons.

A man of many interests, Roeg's work consisted of such eclectic hits as DON'T LOOK NOW, PERFORMANCE, and the THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, starring David Bowie as his Ziggy Stardust inspired alien who came crashing into our realm.

Before Roeg gained notoriety as a director, he made waves as a cinematographer on THE MADDING CROWD and FARENHEIT 451.

Bolstered by a sweetly sinister score by composer Pino Donaggio and a compelling performance by lead actor Donald Sutherland, DON'T LOOK NOW is arguably one of the greatest, if not the greatest horror movie of all time. Brillitantly shot by DP Anthony B. Richmond (who also served as the cinematographer on Roeg's THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH), this whimsical adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier's novel of two grieving parents is breathtakingly beautiful, and ends with an utterly shocking finale.

Roeg is survived by his third wife Harriet Harper and his six children Nicolas Roeg Jr., Luc Roeg, Sholto J. Roeg, Waldo Roeg, Max Roeg, and Statten Roeg.
