    ★★★

    Memorable quotes: 'It's a man's duty to instruct women in all subjects'.
    'I'm free, white and 21'.
    'Do it up brown!'.

    ★★★

    A weirdly structured Son of Sam film that is equal parts family melodrama, procedural and tv movie retelling, of the fateful events of '76 and '77. It's worth it for Robert Trebor's subtle interpretation of
    Berkowitz in the final act.

    I watched this with the perspective that Irena was mentally ill and Oliver desperately wanted to help her get well. The available psychiatric support involved some brief questioning followed by 'pull yourself together' then sexual blackmail. That's enough to make anyone start imagining they are someone else. The hospitals and asylums of the past were full of women like Irena.

    How the fuck has Steve Jones not been in the #metoo mentions yet? 'What did you do after that?.'
    'Got my dicked sucked..'
    'What did you like to do after gigs'.'
    'Get my dick sucked.'
    We did this gig at an Art school and Sebastian Conran was there. [mimics mincing queer voice]

    Tops it off with accusing Bill Grundy of being a dirty old man. What a hypocritical cunt. Lydon was right. Sid was the tragedy of the group, but with colleagues like that no wonder.
