Performance

Mick Jagger is Turner, a burnt-out rock star, in this mind-boggling study of consciousness and identity where nothing is true and everything is permitted. James Fox co-stars as Chas, a gangster on the run who takes shelter in Turner's home. 'Performance' was years ahead of its time, and today remains an audacious and stunning achievement. 'So devastating in technique and content that it should be seen and seen again' - Newsday
