This is a very good film that finally reveals some truths about the Sex Pistols!
30 June 2012 | by jholmstrom-1See all my reviews

I just saw this on Ovation TV, a cable channel on TWC here in NYC. It's not a great film, it doesn't reveal any great truths about life blah blah blah, but what it does accomplish is to finally explain the truth about the Sex Pistols, for good and bad.

Director Alan Parker (who also appears in the film--and is not to be confused with the other Alan Parker, who made great mainstream films), is a lifelong Sex Pistols fan, archivist and expert. Along with Malcolm McLaren, Glen Matlock, Boogie (their road manager), and several other people who were close to the story, they explain the truth about how the Pistols formed, became famous, and flamed out. There's a mythology about the Sex Pistols that this film sets straight--at the same time, it never attempts to deny their greatness, it doesn't attack anyone in the band, it doesn't have an agenda. It mostly fills in some gaps in the Sex Pistols legend. Anyone who cares about punk rock, the Pistols, etc. has to see this. As much as I have always loved the band, I always wanted people to hear the truth! And this film is the truth about the Sex Pistols!
