Iconic Heads celebrates Mick Jagger’s beautiful androgyny with this portrait from the film.
This 18 inch x 12 inch vertical artwork, which is unframed, is printed on matte 100 lb stock and has a 1/2 inch black border all around (which works nicely as a "built-in" mat, basically, when you frame it). The print will come to you carefully kraft-wrapped and placed in a heavy duty triangular print shipping box. Ready for framing!
When Mick Jagger’s first feature film, Performance, was unveiled in 1970, the reviews were less than kind. “You do not have to be a drug addict, pederast, sadomasochist or nitwit to enjoy Performance,” opined the New York Times, “but being one or more of those things would help.”
Yet in the 50 years since it was finished (it took a couple of years to see the light of day, so horrified were Warner Bros with the result), it has become the definition of a cult classic. Two films in one, it begins as a British gangster movie with hallmarks that would go on to define the genre. Halfway through, Jagger turns up as the washed-up rockstar Turner living in a menage a trois with Anita Pallenberg (Pherber) and Michèle Breton (Lucy). The film transforms itself into a hallucinatory end-of-the-60s trip that, with its exploration of identity and sexual fluidity, seems incredibly prescient several decades on. – The Guardian
