The Movie: Performance (1970)
What Is It?: Donald Cammell and Nic Roeg make their directorial debut and Mick Jagger makes his acting debut and the results are certainly without precedent: a pop flick that plays more like a Bergman art house flick than an episode of “The Monkees”. Jagger only gets one chance to do his thing, but the “Memo from Turner” sequence is wild enough to sustain an hour and 45 minutes of personality swapping, sleazy sex, and queasy sound effects.
