Best known for directing the horror film “Don’t Look Now,” Nicolas Roeg got his start in Hollywood as a cinematographer and eventually became the prolific director that most know him as today. “Walkabout” was the first film of his that I came across, as it deals with adult themes set in the Australian Outback. He is also widely known for directing “The Witches” and “The Man Who Fell To Earth,” starring David Bowie. Although he may be gone, his legacy will live on in his work forever.
