Tomorrow night TCM Underground will be airing one of my favorite films, Donald Cammell and Nicolas Roeg’s Performance (1970) starring The Rolling Stones’ frontman Mick Jagger. I’ve spent a lot of time writing and thinking about Performance but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to express my affection for the movie again. In a post that I unimaginatively titled The Many Roles of Mick Jagger I delve into my early obsession with The Rolling Stones and discuss the various acting roles that Mick Jagger has taken over the years. Naturally I focused most of my attention on Performance since it provided Jagger with his best role and I never get tired of revisiting it. It’s a movie that I’ve seen countless times but I’ll probably be watching it again when it airs on TCM tomorrow evening. Visit the Movie Morlocks Blog if you’d like to read more about Mick Jagger’s movie roles.
