Repertory Series ArchiveA Tribute to Nicolas Roeg


1970 • dir Nicolas Roeg, Donald Cammell w/James Fox, Mick Jagger, Anita Pallenberg • 105 min • 35mm

Sadly the world lost a truly innovative filmmaker this past November, the great Nicolas Roeg who started his directing career with this auspiciously audacious film. PERFORMANCE stars James Fox as a violent London gangster who holes up in the home of a reclusive rock star (Jagger) and experiences a psychedelic-induced transformation.

“With a pleasurably peculiar cast of James Fox, Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg, Performance is one of the weirdest slices of Seventies London around, combining gangster violence and ritual humiliation with decaying rock-star glamour.” – Kate Muir, Times (UK)

“This hallucinogenic deconstruction of identity writhes with sex, substances, ultraviolence and good ol’ rock’n’roll.” Total Film
