    Nevermind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols

    Julien Temple documentary on The Sex Pistols is a follow-up to his 1980 documentary on the Pistols, "The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, which was criticized for being too focused on manager Malcolm McLaren's version of the band's rise and fall. This film also documents the rise and fall of the band, but this time includes much more commentary from the band members themselves, particularly John Lydon. The film features a lot of vintage footage from back in the day, which is a lot of fun. I do have to say I was annoyed by the contemporary interviews done in silhouette, which seemed an unnecessary stylistic. But still, the music holds up and the overall film is a lot of fun capturing the raw and gritty feel of the 80s British punch scene.

    Julien Temple revisits the Sex Pistols with this documentary. It is fairly one-sided since John Lydon's perspective on events is about 85% of what you hear, but Lydon seems a lot more reliable than the Malcolm McClaren POV offered in "The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle". There's a ton of material here ... pure gold for fans.

    A rock-solid documentary portrait of the truest punk band of all time.

    The poverty, grime, frustration, and hopelesness of what came to be one of the most influential musical acts in pop history is detailed and harrowing, making one wonder if Jack the Ripper is still around and shows you a bitter, tormented view of London.

    Retour sur les lieux du crime : Julian Temple (tout sauf un bon cinà (C)aste) revient sur l'histoire des Pistols, lui qui avait commis "The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle" et s'à (C)tait fait bien entuber par cette enflure de Malcom Mc Laren. Le film vaut plus par ce qu'il montre de la rà (C)elle hystà (C)rie qui entoure les deux annà (C)es pendant lesquels le groupe sà (C)vit, surtout après le show de Bill Grundy, et la dissection des rapports entre les membres d'un groupe qui n'a jamais à (C)tà (C) rien d'autre qu'un artefact montà (C) par un rouquin ayant mal lu Guy Debord. Voir le concert terminal à San Francisco, et les cris proprement effrayants de Rotten quand il chante "No fun", avant de lancer le fameux "Ever feel like you've been cheated ?". Pas impà (C)rissable, mais un bon complà (C)ment par l'image au livre sà (C)minal de Jon Savage sur le punk, "England's Dreaming".
