I didn't know Roeg had done any DPing after splitting from Corman.  That's really interesting.  It does feel more like a Roeg film, now that you mention it.

Don't like any, made worst piece of art ever made in Australia.

this is the first director poll where i don't have a film I like to vote for, and I've seen 7 of Roeg's. Poor man's Ken Russell.

See, i think exactly the opposite... Russell is a poor man's Roeg.
I love "The Boyfriend" and really like a bunch of others... (Ok, I might actually put his later TV music docs in the "love" catagory.), but I don't take him nearly as seriously as I do Roeg who tends to affect me really viscerally.
