Performance (#48)

It’s time to get real weird as this week’s movie is something of a gangster flick crossed with an acid trip. Brendan and Jason talk about Performance, a film co-starring Mick Jagger in an impressively strong performance. The guys also discuss the unexpectedly massive influence of the film spanning across multiple genres, the progressive viewpoints on gender fluidity, the avant-garde editing style, the controversy surrounding a rumoured “real sex” scene and much more.

The guys also draw next week’s movie out of a hat! What will it be? Join us, won’t you?
