Reviews:

'A unique experience getting into the mind and soul of a brilliant filmmaker. Required viewing for all film students and lovers of cinema.' Sandy Lieberson, producer of Performance and Terry Gilliam's Jabberwocky

'A truly inspiring book by Britain's most innovative and influential living director. True to form, Roeg, rips up our idea of what a "film book" should be and produces something elliptical, insightful - and occasionally mystical . Some day all books about cinema will be like this!' Kevin Macdonald
