Critic Reviews for The Public Image Is Rotten

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (6)

  • The Public Image Is Rotten is a documentary that serves its potential audience well.

    October 29, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Watchable and intermittently entertaining, if hardly incisive, and slightly over-long at 105 minutes, The Public Image Is Rotten includes much that will be of interest only to devotees.

    September 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    September 14, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    September 13, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    November 9, 2017 | Full Review…
  • John Lydon's post-Sex Pistols career is examined in this intimate doc that proves as frustrating as it is fascinating.
