Critic Reviews for The Public Image is Rotten
Diehard fans may enjoy The Public Image is Rotten, but there's not a lot here that they-or even adventurous newbies-can't get more of elsewhere.
Even if you've scratched your head over Mr. Lydon's TV ad work and other efforts to maintain a professional life in recent years, this affectionate and frank movie can elicit newfound admiration for a slightly mellowed iconoclast.
Archival footage of Lydon in the bracing hostility of his youth contrasts dramatically with present-day interviews showing him domesticated, compromised, and happy in the wisdom that most of us learn to accept as compensation.
Fiiller has a lot of material to juggle but does so admirably. It's breathless at times, but never less than engaging. Better yet, Lydon's increasingly baffling politics are kept well out of it.
As fascinating and well-crafted as it is, The Public Image Is Rotten is ultimately a vanity project.
