In all cinema fan's lives there are those movies that you hear about but don't get a chance to see, so they start to loom large in your imagination. In the early 80's, this film wasn't allowed in the US, so I was excited when I came across a bootlegged copy. That feeling didn't last. This is basically McClaren putting on a show for 90 minutes amid boring post-Rotten Sex Pistols material. Academic interest only.
Watched this 1980 crazy romp last night (2018), and I must say it didn't really age well for me. A super-interesting story, and I love the energy and music of the Sex Pistols, but the filmmaking didn't tell this story well enough. For me, this would have been better if condensed into 40 minutes.
