Noel David Taylor,
Enjoyable Documentary, but Nothing New or Revealing
First off, I really enjoyed this documentary. The pacing was excellent, and there was plenty of anecdotes from those who knew the infamous pair, as well as vintage stills and clips.
I'm not going to bore you with the particulars regarding John Simon "Sid Vicious" Ritchie and Nancy Laura Spungen as I'm fairly certain that anyone watching this documentary is, at least, somewhat familiar with them and their tragic end.
Though no new definitive information is revealed, some of the familiar events are elaborated upon by those who were friends with the pair /or involved in the events leading up to their demise.
Your not going to see any of the Sex Pistol alumni or the like, but you will hear from folks such as Sylvain Sylvain New York Dolls' guitarist) and Roberta Bayley (iconic punk photographer),
Overall, stories are told, conspiracies and opinions are offered, fingers are pointed, and both were painted in a positive, if not flawed light, but there are no new, concrete revelations.
Definitely worth a view and a perfect companion piece to "Who Killed Nancy?"
