His television work included movies Heart of Darkness and Sweet Bird of Youth, and episodes of series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, The Pursuers, and Ghost Squad.

Making his directorial debut 23 years after his entry into the film business, Roeg quickly became known for an idiosyncratic visual and narrative style, characterized by the use of disjointed and disorientating editing. For this reason, he was considered a highly influential filmmaker, with such directors as Steven Soderbergh, Christopher Nolan, and Danny Boyle citing him as such.
