Performance makes its long awaited arrival onto DVD for the first time on 5th March 2007 from Warner Home Video. This psychedelic British classic explores the dangerous world of an East End gangster played by James Fox and the hedonism of a drug-fuelled rock star played by an unforgettable Mick Jagger.

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.

Made in 1968 and released in 1970, Performance was extremely controversial in its day due to the explicit scenes of sex, violence and drug taking. So many myths surround the film that it has become a modern movie legend. There are tales of Keith Richards keeping a jealous eye over girlfriend Anita Pallenberg while she filmed sex scenes with bandmate Jagger, lab technicians so shocked at the sex scenes they refused to develop the film and people vomiting during screenings.

Although Roeg has enjoyed a long and critically acclaimed career and continues to make films, Donald Cammell tragically committed suicide in 1996. 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.

  • Featurette "Influence and Controversy" (25 mins approx)
  • 1970 Vintage Featurette "Memo from Turner" (5 mins approx)
