Sid & Nancy Reviews

Groucho Reviews

Oldman's mid-film music-video performance of 'My Way' before a neon staircase compares favorably-as a revelation of character through performance-to Robert De Niro's framing monologues in Raging Bull. [Blu-ray]

Forget Jack and Rose; forget Doctor Zhivago and Larissa; forget Lady and the Tramp. This love story between Sid and Nancy is one of the most fascinating ones you'll ever see.

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

The film's crowning achievement is depicting the soul-sucking toll that drugs take on the talented and the naive. Eventually, drugs replace the people they were, and they turn into mere vessels to an all-consuming craving. They become their addiction.

Despite the downward spiral of these two lives, the film never loses its drive or passion; it never wallows in the misery.

A few too many moralistic foreshadowings, but most of the time Cox's situations and characters develop on their own eloquently entropic terms.

Why then should anyone of sane disposition wish to see the film? Because it is still a love story, and a very touching one at that.

It's not every film maker who credits special thanks to both Luis Bunuel and Dee Dee Ramone, but then Mr. Cox doesn't fit any recognizable mold.
