Critic Reviews of "Performance"TIME MagazineMarch 25, 2013
Pop stars continue to have bad luck in films.Village VoiceMarch 25, 2013
The movie is a facile enough pastiche of underground pyrotechnics and Euro-art pretensions, but far more evocative now is the fast, offhand repartee between the principals.Chicago ReaderMarch 25, 2013
Rapture and boredom both seem valid responses.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Roeg's debut as a director is a virtuoso juggling act which manipulates its visual and verbal imagery so cunningly that the borderline between reality and fantasy is gradually eliminated.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
It isn't altogether successful, largely because it tries too hard and doesn't pace itself to let its effects sink in.Times (UK)July 23, 2015
With a pleasurably peculiar cast of James Fox, Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg, Performance is one of the weirdest slices of Seventies London around, combining gangster violence and ritual humiliation with decaying rock-star glamour.The DissolveApril 07, 2014
For all its hallucinatory excesses, however, Performance is a film of ideas, even if it's happier to let them swirl around than attempt to explain them.Total FilmMarch 25, 2013
This hallucinogenic deconstruction of identity writhes with sex, substances, ultraviolence and good ol' rock'n'roll.TV GuideMarch 25, 2013
Visually dazzling, finely acted investigation into such diverse matters as identity, sexuality, violence, power, and underground culture in late 1960s London.Christian Science MonitorMarch 25, 2013
It put Roeg's powerful cinematic style on the cultural map for the first time.ColeSmithey.comApril 18, 2011
[VIDEO] "Performance" pioneered a slew of modern cinematic techniques adopted by such master filmmakers as Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Quentin Tarantino, and Gaspar Noé.ReelTalk Movie ReviewsAugust 19, 2010
Comes across as pretentious in spots but has not lost its '60s hallucinogenic suggestiveness. It haunts like the dream just out of reach of the rational concrete.
