Performance (R2) in March

Warner Home Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Performance for 5th March 2007. This 1970 British film is now being released in its original uncut theatrical version. It marked the directorial debut of Nicolas Roeg (Walkabout, The Witches), who co-directed with Donald Cammell. James Fox plays Chaz 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 in whose home Chas hides. In this spellbinder of illusion and reality, decadence and decay their worlds collide - and the impact is both exotic and explosive. It has become a modern movie legend, with the original soundtrack featuring music from The Rolling Stones, Ry Cooder, Randy Newman, The Last Poets and more.

Features include:

  • Anamorphic Widescreen Transfer
  • English Mono
  • Featurette "Influence and Controversy" (25 mins approx)
  • 1970 Vintage Featurette "Memo from Turner" (5 mins approx)
