Again- needed something to read at my parents home, this worked! I like all the England "stuff": But the story itself beggars belief even after 30 years; blow-by-blow analyses of the Grundy show Jones admits to four bottles of Blue Nun before they went on air , the record company debacles, and Lydon's dislike of Glenn Matlock "When you talk like an arsehole and look like an arsehole, you're an arsehole" , who would eventually be replaced by the hapless Sid Vicious. Jul 26, Anne rated it really liked it I think this belongs to my brother. Interesting if you do not have access to the film, otherwise just for diehard fans. I really liked what Johnny Rotten said about "Quit trying to be everyone's friend and start trying to be everyone's enemy". But Sid's addiction would probably still have dragged them down. Temple does a bang-up job of placing punk in context, mixing in contemporary ads, pop videos Bowie, Roxy Music, Alice Cooper , and news footage from the time illustrating what a shithole Britain was in the mid's; riots, dole queues, NF marches, crumbling council estates, and shoulder-high piles of rubbish.

Quality of photographs is none to good. I like all the England "stuff": But the story itself beggars belief even after 30 years; blow-by-blow analyses of the Grundy show Jones admits to four bottles of Blue Nun before they went on air , the record company debacles, and Lydon's dislike of Glenn Matlock "When you talk like an arsehole and look like an arsehole, you're an arsehole" , who would eventually be replaced by the hapless Sid Vicious. A interview reveals him to be less stupid than he seemed - thoughtful and amusing in fact - but totally doomed. When asked where he wants to be, Sid glumly replies "under the ground," and you know he means it. Interesting if you do not have access to the film, otherwise just for diehard fans. Lydon's honesty, pain, and regret that his friend couldn't be saved turns to outrage when his death was simply turned into yet another marketing opportunity. This is history, and it's important. As Jones points out, "Sid couldn't play a fuckin' note," so Vicious turns to heroin and the dreadful Nancy Spungen dismissed by Lydon as "a hooker" , and the rest is hideously inevitable. Wisely, Temple ends the story here, having delivered a compelling documentary that succeeds in conjuring something of the Pistols' humor, energy, and tragedy. The film juxtaposes archive footage with recent interviews with the band - all moodily shot in shadowed silhouette, and utterly candid about their own shortcomings. I really liked what Johnny Rotten said about "Quit trying to be everyone's friend and start trying to be everyone's enemy". This was punk's raison d'etre, and Lydon's yardstick for measuring the Sex Pistols' success is simply that "We managed to offend all the people we were fucking fed up with.

Temple does a bang-up job of placing punk in context, mixing in contemporary ads, pop videos Bowie, Roxy Music, Alice Cooper , and news footage from the time illustrating what a shithole Britain was in the mid's; riots, dole queues, NF marches, crumbling council estates, and shoulder-high piles of rubbish. Again- needed something to read at my parents home, this worked! Hobbled by the backlash against "God Save the Queen" as punk declined into uniformity, the Pistols fled to America, where they simply fell to bits, Lydon still characterizing his bandmates as "total wanker cowards" while Jones now admits regret, wishing they'd lasted longer. Detroit rated it really liked it "Everybody on the planet knows Malcolm's McLaren full of shit," proclaims Steve Jones early on in Julien Temple's "The Filth and the Fury," making it clear from the onset that this is the band's own version of events and a whole lot closer to the truth than "The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle. But Sid's addiction would probably still have dragged them down.
