Film review: ‘Sid and Nancy’ ★★★

Kicking, screaming, swearing and drunkenly staggering his way to centre stage in pulsing, combative bio-drama Sid and Nancy is one of the punk movement’s most vulgar, deplorable and magnetic shining lights. The Sex Pistols’ so-called bassist, Sid Vicious, was a tortured soul who burned with violent intensity that repelled, frightened, confused and attracted those around him in bewildering fashion. 

Sid and Nancy marks its 30th anniversary with a re-release in cinemas from 5th August – read the full CineVue review here.
