A legendary CultClassic since its release, ''Performance'' stands out as even among the more weird films made in the period, subject to rumours and speculations even during production. The nudity and sex scenes earned it the ire of Warner Bros who had produced the film, resulting in early bowdlerized versions. The film has since been regarded and treasured as a defining portrait of London in TheSixties, for its GenreBusting KudzuPlot. The film's score by Jack Nitzche is highly praised and the song "Memo from Turner" by Ry Cooder and Mick Jagger is well regarded enough that Creator/MartinScorsese recycled it for ''Film/{{Goodfellas}}''. Another BigNameFan Creator/AlanMoore devoted an entire section of his ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' comics to making an unofficial prequel to some of the events in the film, with the SerialNumbersFiledOff of character names.

One of the most infamous {{Mind Screw}}s in film history, directed by Donald Cammell and Nicolas Roeg. Also famous as the first and probably only good acting role for [[Music/TheRollingStones Mick Jagger]].

* MethodActing: Where do we start? James Fox was made to live in South London and hang out with gangsters in real life for a few months, with David Litvinoff (credited as "dialogue coach and technical advisor", but actually pretty much "mob liaison") making sure he didn't get into any real trouble. During the filming, Cammell allegedly encouraged the cast and crew to take drugs and mingle sexually to help get into the necessary atmosphere. It is strongly rumoured that some of the sex scenes (especially the early one between Turner, Ferber and Lucy) were the real thing. One scene has been confessed by Pallenberg to show her actually shooting heroin, which she was just starting to get into at the time. There are some (possibly exaggerated) stories about how badly this messed some people up in real life.
