A London gangster (Fox) is forced into hiding and where better to stay than in the mansion of a reclusive rock star, Mick Jagger in his most memorable role. Over time the two characters bond and learn about themselves as well as each other.
After the disastrous Ned Kelly, Jagger needed a hit and Performance was it. Although playing a rock star probably wasn't the greatest challenge, Jagger was convincing holding his own against Fox as the London gangster in hiding. A memorable film that is still regarded as a psychedelic classic.
