About the Book

Performance is the 'cultiest', and many say the greatest, British film: a study of crime, class, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, jointly directed by the formidable team of Nicolas Roeg and Donald Cammell. Colin MacCabe has edited this indispensable edition of Cammell's dark, exciting, esoteric screenplay. London gangster Chas Devlin is forced to go on the run when his taste for violence becomes a liability to his boss. He seeks refuge in the Notting Hill residence of retired rock star Turner, and the two men lock horns in a mutual fascination fuelled by hallucinogens and the erotic allure of Turner's live?in lovers
