The Filth and the Fury (1999) A Sex Pistols film by Julien Temple

    Film4

    Julien Temple directs this documentary profile of the Sex Pistols - Johnny Rotten (née Lydon), Glen Matlock, Paul Jones, Steve Cook and Sid Vicious - the punk band who shocked the world both with their music and their off-stage antics in the latter half of the 1970s. Including much never-before-seen material from the band members' personal archives, this film debunks many of the myths which have grown up around the Pistols, allowing them to tell their story their own way - free from the influence of controversial former manager Malcolm McLaren.
