“Or like Turner in Performance, with his drugs and exotic rugs”


Mick Jagger as Turner in Performance (1970). Tom Hiddleston as Adam in Only Lovers Left Alive (2013). Blog title from my piece on Only Lovers Left Alive, post-NZFF last year (link). Could have added “and his books and his heroes”, William Burroughs in both. Coincidentally, Only Lovers Left Alive was almost the title of a Rolling Stones film in the 1960s (details).
