Performance marked the directorial debut of Nicolas Roeg (Don't Look Now, The Man Who Fell To Earth) and co-director Donald Cammell (Demon Seed), who also wrote the experimental screenplay - citing Francis Bacon, Nietzsche and Jorge Borges as inspiration. The film owes its distinct visual style and cult status to the successful collaboration between these two filmmakers.
Set in swinging sixties London, James Fox plays Chas Devlin, a gangster with a talent for violence and intimidation, who in underworld terms, is a "performer." Mick Jagger is Turner, a reclusive rock superstar whose home becomes a hideout for Chas. In this spellbinder of illusion and reality, decadence and decay their worlds collide - and the impact is both exotic and explosive.
The soundtrack features music from The Rolling Stones, Ry Cooder, Randy Newman, The Last Poets and more.
