CGiii Comment

Roeg's first, Jagger's first...

Cammell was knee-deep into the Chelsea Set - he knew what he was talking about.

Fox puts in a performance outwith his usual comfort zone - and excels.

Many films are branded cult...but, few (and even fewer) manage to maintain such status - this does...without a shadow of a doubt.

It's not for everyone...but, its influence can be seen in the works of many new directors.

It was experimental and it did push the boundaries - not so much now - but, definitely in its day.
