British documentary about film director Donald Cammell, best known for his collaboration with Nicolas Roeg on Performance (1970). The lead actors in Performance, Mick Jagger and James Fox, are interviewed along with Roeg, Barbara Steele, Cathy Moriarty, and avant-garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger, who cast Cammell in his 1973 Lucifer Rising. MacDonald and Rodley trace Cammell's career from his days as a Paris portrait artist to such films as Demon Seed, White of the Eye, and The Wild Side, probing the dark side of Cammell's "dissociative personality" that triggered his 1996 suicide.
