    "I hate my fuckin' life."
    "This is just a rough patch. Things'll be much better when we get to America, I promise."
    "We're in America. We've been here a week. New York is in America, you fuck."

    In the course of making a film about one legendary performer, Alex Cox wound up introducing the world to another, the inestimable Gary Oldman. Oldman is incredible as Sid Vicious, all piss and vinegar early on and incoherent junkie mess as the film,…

    A really good biopic of Sid Vicious with a great, star-making performance from Gary Oldman.

    Commissioner Gordon goes on Punk Mode while his girlfriend Nancy is hysterically realistic and scary..Alex Cox captures the downward spiral of one of rock's most infamous couples with utmost honesty. All the cliches are in order but it's done with so much visceral sincerity it is hard not to look away and not applaud.

    One of the most important punk films you will ever watch telling the story of punk rock icon Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen's often very sad and abusive relationship between one another that comes across as surprisingly touching and heartfelt throughout several moments in the film. I thought Sid & Nancy did an amazing job of capturing the feel of the punk scene in England during the mid-'70s as well as New York a couple of years later. Gary Oldman somehow…

    Gary Oldman played Sid Vicious in Cox's film where Chole Webb played Nancy Spungen. So if you didn't know about the Sex Pistols basically Sid Vicious started strong in Punk Rock but spiraled out of control along with Nancy due to heavy drug and alcohol use, to put it simply it's greatly displayed and Oldman is amazingly in-depth and intense.

    Sid & Nancy is a simultaneously colorful, dark, funny and tragic biopic that is elevated by excellent direction from Alex Cox and two unforgettable performances from young Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb. The film is about the punk rock legend Sid Vicious, but it is much more than just a biopic that highlights certain moments in the subject's life. The film almost feels like a chaotic and angry romantic comedy with a little bit of tragedy and sadness added in. It's…

    Forgot how many humorous moments pepper this film. I'm a big fan of one punk hanging up his look to become a rude boy, and the whole Spungen family visit scene carried over the wry humor I loved from Repo Man. "We don't even have time to go to the methadone clinic." "Blaze of Glory." Sid drunkenly performing "Bodies" to a cassette tape in front of ginger kids. So great!

    Weird how I've seen Repo Man 12312380 times, but haven't…
