  1. A great, searching, incendiary chronicle of the Sex Pistols, the razor-hearted visionaries of punk anarchy.

    The concerts are hypnotic, the music is swell, and the entire package moves along at just the right pace.

    This loud and exhilarating documentary from director Julien Temple brings it all back in a vitriolic spray of spite, spittle and raw rock and roll that still hits like a heart attack.
  5. Efficiently and imaginatively directed.
  6. It's just twice as much as we need to know about the Sex Pistols.
