An extraordinary directorial debut by the late Nicolas Roeg, collaborating with Donald Cammell, and a fractious movie of two worlds in collision: East End gangland meets psychedelic 60s pop culture.
James Fox gives a mesmerising performance as Chas, a psychotic hard man who is forced underground by a murderous feud, to hide out in the cavernous Notting Hill residence of jaded rock star, Turner (Mick Jagger) with his bohemian entourage.
The film plays with alter-egos, sexuality, and identity as people slip in and out of character and guises, underlined by the presence of Jagger and his rock persona.

SCENES SEASON AT DEPTFORD CINEMA
Inspired by a project by Caroline Jupp to interview local audiences about their personally significant movie scenes, this season is celebrating a selection of these films from the iconic to the obscure.
Performance was chosen by Phil, one of Deptford Cinema’s volunteers, for its Memo from Turner scene, where Jagger’s character morphs mid-song into surreal boardroom rant.
A Scenes publication will be available to browse and purchase during the Scenes Season from the Deptford Cinema bar.
Copies of the book will go to three ticket holders pulled from a hat on the night.
