Performance is a cult 1968 film that inhabits a disturbing world of sex, violence, reality, fantasy and unexpected role reversals. Beset by controversy, it brought together London s violent gangster subculture and the hedonistic world of 1960s rock stardom. When it was finally released in 1970 it attracted everything from puzzled admiration to vitriolic hatred. Mick Jagger s participation had helped director Donald Cammells sell his original idea to Warner Bros, but the studio heads were appalled by the perverted result presented at their first screening. Ordered to recut, and almost destroyed altogether, the scene was set for endless rumours and myths surrounding the history of the film as well as the personality of future suicide Cammell, the role of co-director Nicolas Roeg and the charged sparks between Jagger, Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg during the shoot. A film of enormous ambition, Performance is a compelling and shocking coda to London s Swinging Sixties era, and a film whose stature only grows with time. This book is a detailed account of the film from its inception, offering new and surprising insights into how it was made. Author Paul Buck has been researching it for over 40 years, drawing on many diverse sources, including his own interviews with participants who have rarely spoken about their involvement.
