ROCKERS ON THE BIG SCREEN
Mick Jagger Night! Double Feature!
PERFORMANCE / NED KELLY
35 mm!

PERFORMANCE
1970, Warner Bros., 105 min, UK, Dir: Donald Cammell, Nicolas Roeg

Perhaps the wildest, most deeply layered psychedelic movie ever made. Gangster James Fox goes on the lam, hiding out in reclusive pop star Mick Jagger’s decaying townhouse in the hippie London ghetto. Jagger and polysexual pal Anita Pallenberg put Fox through his paces with mind games and large doses of psylocibin mushrooms - all climaxing in the mind-blowing “Memo for Turner” production number. Brutal beatings, sexual-identity crises and prodigious drug-taking are punctuated by one of Jack Nitzsche’s best scores (highlighted by Ry Cooder’s incredible bottleneck guitar work).

NED KELLY (1970)
1970, Park Circus/MGM, 99 min, UK, Dir: Tony Richardson

Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger plays the title role in Tony Richardson’s (TOM JONES) biopic of the legendary Australian bushranger. Beautifully shot and thoroughly anti-establishment, this rousing drama musters a good deal of sympathy for the poor devil, driven by police persecution to robbery and eventually homicide in the 1870s. Outlaw country singers Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson helped supply the soundtrack.
