Performance- This film is about madness. And sanity. Fantasy. And reality. Death. And life. Vice. And Versa. Donald Cammell and Nicholas Roeg's magical concoction starring Mick Jagger and James Fox! One of the most extraordinary, and arguably, greatest British films ever! A flashy young gangster called Chas has to go on the run when he antagonizes his boss, Harry Flowers, by murdering a rival in a grudge vendetta. He eventually hides out in a house run by a reclusive pop star in retirement, Turner, who has two young ladies, Pherber and Lucy, also in attendance. They begin to put pressure on Chas, feeding him drugs and breaking down his sense of identity. The climax is violent. The film follows not so much a linear plot as a cluster of themes and structured juxtapositions: life & death, male & female, sanity & insanity, reality & performance, wholeness of personality & disintegration of identity.
1970. 105 minutes, in color.
