This is one of those films that is so odd and disjointed (it was, reportedly, edited down from three hours), So full of psychedelic blurring of what is usually separate and distinct that you either love it or yawn. I tended to find it a bit of a pretentious bore except for a few great scenes. The scene that is unforgettable is Jagger singing "Memo to Turner" out of sync with the record. The effect is disorienting and fascinating.

Format: VHS Tape
Filmed in 1968 and held back for two years, this was as much of its time as 'A Clockwork Orange', and is just as dazzlingly odd today. A mixture of realistic, violent gangster film and psychedlic exploration, it's neither particularly nostalgic for the 60s, nor very hopeful for the coming 70s. Mick Jagger, in his one good role, plays himself, and James Fox is as detatched as ever - he was so affected by the filming, he retired from the motion picture industry for almost a decade. Co-directed by Donald Cammell and Nicholas Roeg, the influence of the latter is shown clearly in the odd editing - jump-cuts and strange, disjointed switches of perspective abound. The soundtrack is fantastic, too, featuring a strange mixture of ambient electronics, easy listening, and blues. It's a shame it isn't on DVD, really.

"If Performance does not upset audiences," he explained, "then it is nothing."
My friend Neil and I have been waiting for some time to see this film at the cinema. It hasn't been widely available on video for some time and has not yet been released on DVD.
So we were overjoyed to see it was being shown at the Electric Cinema a wonderful recently revamped cinema in Notting Hill Gate, not a hundred yards from Powis Square, one of the main locations in the film.
Performance was financed by Warner Brothers in the late 60's, though it was not released for two years after its completion due to WB demanding recuts and probably hoping the whole sordid little film would be forgotten about.
Thankfully it wasn't, and has over the years become something important and special to many people.
Performance starts as a seemingly straightforward East end gangster film, typical of the period. However when Chas, played to perfection by James Fox, takes refuge in the bohemian lair that is Turners (Jagger) Powis Square townhouse, the pace and the feel of the film change dramatically.
Turner is a retired rock icon who is wallowing in in a filthy corner of his psyche while he decides whether to try and recapture his mojo or continue his hermit like existence. However the hermit tag only applies to Turners lack of contact with fresh air, not many hermits have two pretty free spirits in the form of Pherber (Anita Pallenberg ) and Lucy (Michele Breton) roaming naked around their self imposed prisons.
Pallenberg is the wild blonde who was probably didn't find it too hard to get into character, at the time of filming she was actually Keith Richards's girlfriend, and tales of a jealous Richards watching over the set are abound.

"Performance"(1970) directed by both Nicolas Roeg and Donald Camell and starring Mick Jagger and James Fox, is a film that is directed to a certain group of people and taste and treated as a cult classic. Chances are you've discovered this film because you are one of those people and you'll probably dig it. I saw this film because I am a big Rolling Stones fan and of the 60's and wanted to see Mick Jagger and to tell you the truth, I was not expecting much. "Performance" is a great film for what it is, an experimental film dealing with the clash of two worlds in a nonlinear format. In the beginning of the film, I thought it was just being weird for the sake of being weird but once I started to accept it and let it unravel, I thought it was a great film. James Fox does a great performance and Mick Jagger too but his just playing himself. The film has a lot of interesting shots and scenes which really stick with you. At the end of the film, my psyche had changed and I felt like I was in a different state of consciousness. I would really like to see "Performance" restored on to DVD because the sound quality on video is awful and makes it even harder to understand the thick Cockney accents. All and all, "Performance" has its errors but is a great snapshot into the culture and general feeling of the 60's.

I found this movie after watching some special films like "Picnic at Hanging Rock" and "Mulholland Drive" that made me hungry for something different in a movie. In fact, I rented "Performance" after following Amazon's chain of "people who bought this movie also bought this movie", and it is now on my best of the best list. What a stunning film it is. Sometimes, we struggle too hard to explain things. "Performance" should be experienced, not explained. Watching this film is like having a dream, and, like a dream, it won't make much sense when you awaken from it. But the images from it and the feelings they inspire will haunt you. I was about to write here about some examples, but I'll just give one - a Jim Morrison poster on the wall entitled "It's Over". Perhaps the movie is about the death throes of 60's idealism? I'm sure that in part it is, and that different people will have different interpretations. Did you have a dream last week? What did it mean?
