Movie Info

Assembled from unseen archive footage, rare offcuts and masses of hilarious junk-culture detail from the pre-punk '70s, this inspired collage is as much passionate social history as rockumentary. Intercutting a touching, never-before-seen Sid Vicious interview with contemporary quotes from the surviving Pistols -- wittily filmed, like renegade villains, in silhouette -- Temple exposes the band's human side as never before.

Audience Reviews for The Filth and the Fury

    I saw it when it first came out and when I was more into The Sex Pistols. I remember really liking it--especially the way the interviews with the surviving Pistols as if their identities were anonymous. A must for any Pistols fan.

    Interesting slice of punk rock history. Great stock footage of the Sex Pistols.

    A flashy collage about the rise and fall of the sex pistols, the band that epitomized and nearly destroyed punk rock. Told in their own angry and uncompromising words.

    Ha ha! Another band movie so another poor rating from me? Not this time. Julien Temple does a very good job here of bringing the Sex Pistols to life. A burning bright light that blinded for such a short period of time but had a profound impact on the future.
