Here's the thing about doing a doc on the Pistols. #1, if you're remotely interested in the band, this stuff is legend by now...canon. Either you know it or you don't. No. 2: their musical output was comically minimal, There's only so many times you can hear "Anarchy" in 100 minutes. Contrast that with Temple's Strummer doc, where he had DOZENS of songs to play with. Anyway, that aside, a very competent piece of work with a surprisingly candid and remorseful Lydon as its breakout star and soul.

Top badass moment? If anger was an energy, we’d not need any other fuel these days, green or otherwise. Interesting and surprisingly poignant stuff, especially from Lydon, I struggle to imagine how, even without the corporate control of music, we’ll ever see it cause such a fuss again. No wonder the kids today prefer computer games instead, when the alternative is Coldplay. Now for homework go read Flowers in the Dustbin followed by England’s Dreaming. No cats, chainsaws or decapitations.

A look at one of my fave bands of all time. At times funny but ultimately sad and destructive look at the 70's, rock and/or roll and of course heroin and band egos. A great companion piece to John Lydon's autobiography "rotten"

I liked how this movie approached its subject, but I didn't really learn anything about the band.

No big surprises or revelations but a good re-telling. Lydon can spin a good yarn and it moves along nicely.
