Veteran Brit Filmmaker Nic Roeg to Receive London Film Critics' Circle Honor
Critics also announce earlier January 2012 date for London ceremony.
LONDON – Veteran British filmmaker Nicolas Roeg is to be honored with the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film by the London Film Critics’ Circle (LFCC) awards.
The LFCC also said it is changing dates for its 32nd nods to Jan. 19, 201, a month earlier than normal.
The Circle wants its ceremony to be “earlier in the awards calendar than in previous years,” in explaining the date switch.
Roeg’s honor means he joins a roster already boasting Dirk Bogarde, Richard Attenborough, Julie Walters, Judi Dench, Quentin Tarantino and Kristin Scott Thomas, all recipients of the Dilys Powell award.
Roeg’s directing resume boasts Performance, Don't Look Now and The Witches.
He has worked with Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Julie Christie, Anjelica Houston, Oliver Reed amongst others and is acclaimed for his mix of sexual and psychedelic imagery, visual artistry and provocative cinema.
Roeg’s CV also boasts sojourns into cinematography, screenwriting, directing, editing and composing.
"This award has truly amazed me and certainly caught me a bit left- footed. I'm sure the critics will understand when I say: on looking through and reading some of my old reviews, I'm torn between thanking you and forgiving you," Roeg said. "But having slept on it, I'll go with the positive and thank you all and hope that in the countdown for the decision of the 'Critics' Circle' to give me a tribute, some old mathematical rule applied where two negatives can sometimes make a positive."
Nominations for all other award categories will be announced on Dec. 20.
