Mike Hodges, a British director of the cult classic science fiction picture “Flash Gordon” and the gangland thriller “Get Carter,” has passed away. He was 90.

According to his acquaintance and former producer Mike Kaplan, Hodges passed away Saturday at his home in the southwest English county of Dorset. The reason for death was not disclosed.

Hodges, born in Bristol, an English port city, served two years of mandatory military service on a Royal Navy minesweeper, seeing underprivileged coastal areas all around England. Hodges received accounting training.

In a statement to The Guardian earlier this year, he said, “For 2 years, my middle-class senses were forced to observe horrible poverty and hardship that I was previously oblivious of.

The event influenced his 1971 thriller “Get Carter,” which he directed and wrote. In it, Michael Caine played a criminal who tracks out his brother’s killers by returning to his hometown of Newcastle. It is regarded as a British classic because of its unrelenting violence, vividly grimy northeast England surroundings, and jazz accompaniment.

In Hodges’ 1972 criminal comedy “Pulp,” Caine again had a leading role. The sci-fi thriller “The Terminal Man,” featuring George Segal as a scientist who becomes violent when electrodes are inserted in his brain, was directed by Hodges in 1974.

“Morons from Outer Space,” a sci-fi comedy directed by Hodges in 1985, did less. A Prayer for the Dying, in which Mickey Rourke played a former IRA terrorist, and “Black Rainbow,” in which Rosanna Arquette played a psychic medium who was the target of an assassin, where two more of his films from the 1980s.

Hodges enjoyed a late-career triumph with the 1998 drama “Croupier,” which helped give Clive Owen his international breakthrough role as a dealer in a London casino. The movie initially had a poor performance in the UK, but it was a huge success. Hodges’ final movie, “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead,” which was released in 2003, also starred Owen.
