It's probably the heaviest movie ever made — a kaleidoscope of transvetitism, sado-masochism, deaths, bad fly, trips etc. James Fox — Jagger as a retired rock star, and Fox as a thug on the run. Jagger is involved in a three—way relationship with two chicks at his Powis Square pad. Fox moves in and is gradually freaked—out and mentally dem- olished. It's a totally illogical movie. A series of seemingly un—related incidents, and complex inter- relationships flashed across the screen at almost subliminal speed— Jagger/Fox Jagger/chicks Fox/ chicks, and chick/chick. Chilling and very effective, with superb editing and camera work. Jagger is outrageous. Any doubts about his acting ability that might remain after "Ned Kelly" are eff- ectively dispelled. He parodies and caricatures himself; pouting, postur- ing grimacing and generally acting mean and ugly. The music comes from Jack Nitzche, Ry Cooder, and the Merry Clayton Singers. The soundtrack album is now out and even taken out of the context of the film it's well worth hearing. PERFORMANCE is an evil movie. At times, it's almost pornographic, and the violence scenes are sickeningly realistic. Warner Bros, are warning people not to see it while tripping — they could well be right. It'll be released in October/November this year. The Stones have just started their first tour of Europe for 3Vi years. Jagger was recently interviewed by the Copenhagen paper "Politiken", and came out with the following statement:- "I want to earn money on our new records, not for the sake of the money but to invest it in other things, such as the Black Panther breakfast programme for ghetto children. We have already set aside some bread for them, in fact." He claimed that the profits of the big American companies went to buy arms and support right-wing organisations. ~'\ want the money to fight this with" he finished.
