On the run from his boss, London gangster Chas (James Fox) finds himself hiding out with retired rock god Turner (mercurial Mick Jagger) and his girlfriends. The conflict between the two posturing men turns into fascination and eventually murderous transference. Or not? Cammell’s dense script is layered with philosophical complexity, and Roeg’s keen eye and fascination with editing technique created one of the most controversial art-house films of the era.
