The story of Sid and nancy is ultimately one of tragedy but Alex Cox presents it in a way that leads to some acceptance for their fans. The film is hilarious in parts at the beginning but as Sid's world spirals downwards into depths of sickness and heroin the audience plunges with the couple. Gary Oldman portrays the vulnerability of Sid perfectly, whilst Chloe webb manages to balance the little girl side of nancy with the image that the media usually portray her with. Despite the squalor, Sid and nancy contains the most romantic sex scene and their love will move you more then any typical romantic comedy could. Every scene is structured perfectly, the falling rubbish symbolising their increasing isolation, the fire representing their loss of reality. I expected to cry whihc i hate but the actors drag you into the hotel room with them make you see why they died. I cannot express the true excellence of this film, not within 1000 words you have to watch it.
