A review of this — 12 weeks ago
I love Gary Oldman. I love The Sex Pistols. I love Alex Cox’ “Repo Man”. This, however, is a piece of shit film. It’s not even funny in a comic book character type of way. I firmly recommend watching the superb Sex Pistols documentary named “The Filth and The Fury” instead of this muck. In this film, everything’s supposed to be shocking war, and all the subtleties and genius of the actual group are lost. I can’t even begin to list what’s wrong with this film: how Nancy Spungen/Sid Vicious/John Lydon/Malcolm McLaren is portrayed/acted/written? How the soundtrack is by some cover band? That the script seems to be a draft written by a 7-year-old?
