Jay Glennie has done an outstanding job conveying a very dark and difficult film into a beautifully printed book. Personal anecdotes from those involved, great insight and so many unseen images.... I find the book easier to cope with than the movie personally for a myriad of reasons. Congrats Jay

It’s 50 years since I filmed Performance & I’m happy to say that Jay Glennie is set to release the Performance 50th Anniversary large format book. Featuring interviews with me, James Fox, Sandy Lieberson, Nic Roeg and over 500 images, it’s a beauty! 


James Fox

Congratulations on a magnus opus. It is special for us who were part of it or close to it then, And it can't help being a huge buzz to the many new people i hope it reaches. It is such a well understood and gorgeous looking assembly of the story. Best wishes!

Xmas has come early in my house with the arrival of          Jay Glennie’s sumptuous book telling the story of the making of the iconic film Performance 50th Annversary, It’s a fascinating, in depth peek behind the camera with those who made it & the thoughts of those who cherish it. Bravo Jay.
