Performance (1970) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Warner Archive Collection Brand: Warner Manufacturing Model: 28816687
In underworld terms, Chas Devlin is a "performer," a gangster with a talent for violence and intimidation. Turner is a reclusive rockstar. When Chas and Turner meet, their worlds collide - and the impact is both exotic and explosive. James Fox and Mick Jagger indelibly play Chas and Turner in this spellbinder of illusion and reality, decadence and decay. Fugitive Chas hides in Turner's cavernous house. Events then spiral into a eerie breakdown of barriers and roles in which Chas sees his sense of reality vanish. And Turner's experiment of self-discovery leads to a shocking final performance of his own. Co-directed by Donald Cammell and Nicolas Roeg, Performance has become a modern movie legend. Experience it and understand why.

" (The Guardian)"Gregory Doran's exceptional production is a rousing triumph." (The Observer)"David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare's masterful history play. Gregory Doran's production is superbly orchestrated. This is a lucid, moving production packed with tremendous performances. From Michael Pennington's John of Gaunt, the last great Englishman, to Oliver Ford Davies's wonderfully bewildered Duke of York." (The Daily Express)"One of the hottest tickets of the year." (The Times)"A lucid and gripping account of Richard II. David Tennant is in splendid form here. In his gorgeous, gold-embroidered robes, this Richard is wrapped in the mystique of medieval majesty. There isn't a weak link in the cast. Ferocious eloquence overcomes deathbed infirmity in Michael Pennington's superb portrayal of John of Gaunt, and Oliver Ford Davies gives a fine edge of grumpy comedy to the Duke of York's consc...
