Alex Cox's riveting biopic tells the bleak, heroin-drenched story of Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and his disturbed American girlfriend, Nancy Spungen. Gary Oldman delivers a bravura performance as Sid, matched by Chloe Webb's grating, clearly unhinged Nancy. The two lovers' childlike tenderness with each other contrasts sharply with their bleak, violent nihilism, and while the script implies that Nancy's death was accidental, the line between intention and accident is deliberately blurred. By turns romantic and horrific, SID & NANCY is often grueling to watch, but always compelling.
This followup to Cox's cult hit REPO MAN was another critical success, showing that the director was as comfortable with reality-based material as with the satirical fantasy of his first feature. His romantic vision draws us in while throwing us back in time to London and New York at the inception of the drug-laden British punk era. The film's dreamlike style and a hypnotic score dramatize the schism between Sid and Nancy's world and the world around them--and the inevitable horror when those worlds collide.

Reviews:"...One of the most original films of the '80s, an unlikely mix of black comedy and realistic tragedy..." -- Rating: A
"...Ghastly but funny..."
"...A sordid, intentionally ugly and sometimes unexpectedly beautiful film....Played vividly by [Oldman and Webb]..."
"...A true romance..." - Recommended

I like Cox films (especially Sid and Nancy). I used to watch the (Channel 4 I think) Cox introduces films thing a few years back, and I find him very interesting and a head full of knowledge. Genius almost. I just love good films though, and Cox makes mostly very good ones. If and when the A Cox boxset comes down in price I will look to be buying that.

Thanks for the reminder....it was late at night:oops:

Box set is way overpriced at present. Don't wanna buy now and then pick it up for £20 or whatever in the new year:thumbsup:
