Director: Julien Temple
Actor: Sid Vicious
The Filth and the Fury is the second movie Julien Temple made about The Sex Pistols. His first effort was The Great Rock and Roll Swindle, which was released at the tail end of punk rock's first wave in the 1970s. This earlier effort was criticised for being too skewed towards the Pistols' manager Malcolm McLaren's version of events about the band. The Filth and the Fury tells the story from the viewpoint of the bandmembers themselves (albeit in silhouette during their contemporary interviews).
