"The only performance that makes it, that makes it all the way, is the one that achieves madness." - Turner
"Alan and I became obsessed with..Nic Roeg's Performance, which was shot in Powis Square down the road, watching it on a loop and learning all the dialogue , enjoying the parallels with the film's odd, marginal characters living in another strange, decaying house in Notting Hill." - Brett Anderson, Coal Black Mornings
We were so thrilled that Jay Glennie, author of Performance: The Making Of A Classic, could join us for our first The Insatiable Ones Film Club.
Our chosen film was the iconic 'Performance'.
Performance is a film where two worlds collide - that of a underworld enforcer and that of a reclusive hedonistic rockstar. A journey of the exploration of identity ensues. Madness. And sanity. Fantasy. And reality. Death. And life. Vice. And versa.
