The film is based on the true story of the bizarre (yet compelling) romance between British punk rocker Sid Vicious (Dracula'sGary Oldman) and American groupie, Nancy Spungen (Chloe Webb) during the late 1970's. It follows them all the way down their depressing lives, ending with Nancy's suicide, in which Sid was accused and booked for her murder.

This isn't a great film, because of the depressing subject matter, but compelling performances (Oldman and Webb are Sid and Nancy) and masterful direction from Alex Cox (Repo Man) make this much more interesting than Oliver Stone's The Doors. A major downer, but still holds your interest to the end.

My Rating = Three Stars
