Published December 08, 2005.Bad TimingDirected by: Nicolas Roeg(Paradox/Criterion)This isn't Nicolas Roeg's best-known movie. It hasn't the selling points of The Man Who Fell to Earth or Don't Look Now. But its influence is such that it needs to be rediscovered. Long before Steven Soderbergh and Atom Egoyan were heralded for fragmented editing, Roeg's disorienting cutting patterns were revolutionary expressions of his characters shell shock. Art Garfunkel and Theresa Russell suffer the after-effects of a love affair that may be scarier than meets the surface.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
