This is a movie made by Nicolas Jack Roeg who also made
The Man Who Fell to Earth about six years later.
Walkabout (1971, Nicholas Roeg)
It's a great film starring Nic's son in his only major movie role.
" Some people are very lucky, and have the story in their heads.
I've never story-boarded anything.
I like the idea of chance.
What makes God laugh is people who make plans."
If one does too much planning, you're not seeing the gold beneath your feet. "
Nic also made the film below Insignificance
starring his wife as Marilyn M.
Things work themselves out.
You've lost the showmanship thing, the fairground barker, come-see-what's-inside aspect of film-making when you try to plan everything for the audience. "
I couldn't find a copy of this movie on DVD until I found this DVD shop at the Woodford Folk Festival two years ago.
