  • Facts of life

    Nicolas Roeg’s films are known to assemble scenes and images of the plot haphazardly , without chronological or causal effect . This requires the viewer to mentally rearrange all the elements to understand the storyline. They seem to “break reality into a thousand fragments" and are " unpredictable , fascinating , cryptic and may make you wonder what just happened ..." 2 One of the characteristics of film Roeg is that his films are mounted disjointed and semi- coherent . They only make sense when the film comes to an end, when crucial information is revealed. These are “fixtures shaped mosaics filled elliptical details which will become very important now." 4 These techniques, and the sense of foreboding atmosphere Roeg , influenced several generations of filmmakers like Steven Soderbergh5 Tony Scott6 , Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, François Ozon and Danny Boyle7 . Roeg 's influence on cinema is not limited to the narrative deconstruction.
