Nicholas move[edit]

I moved this from "Nicholas" (a common mis-spelling, but still a mis-spelling). Camembert

Walkabout: director or cinematographer?[edit]

This article describes Roeg as cinematographer of Walkabout, while the article Walkabout (film) says he was director. I suppose one of the two needs correcting. PJTraill 19:01, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

The credits for the film say "Directed and Photographed by: Nicholas Roeg" Sherurcij (Speaker for the Dead) 11:30, 17 January 2007 (UTC)


The lead mentions Lawrence of Arabia, but it's not in the list of films. So did he or didn't he? (talk) 13:55, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Cut-up technique[edit]

The article claims that Roeg employs the cut-up technique. Note that this is a literary technique, and montage techniques already existed in film before Brion Gysin et al employed it in the literary context. More likely that Roeg draws on film techniques, e.g. the Kuleshov Effect. In any event there is no attribution that Roeg uses the (literary) cut-up technique to make films.
