Veteran director Nicolas Roeg is to be honoured by the London Film Critics' Circle for his contribution to the movie industry.
The Don't Look Now director will accept the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence, following in the footsteps of previous recipients including Quentin Tarantino, Sir Richard Attenborough and Dame Judi Dench.
He says, "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. But having slept on it, I'll go with the positive and thank you all."
Jason Solomons, Chairman of The Critics' Circle Film Section,adds, "Nic Roeg's films stand out as one of the most distinctive and influential bodies of work of any British film maker... He adds mischief, daring and brilliance to it, as well as the sort of maverick artistic spirit that only cinema can liberate."
Roeg will receive the prize at a ceremony in the British capital on 19 January (12).
