ON October 12th 1978 Nancy Spungen, an ex-prostitute, sometimes stripper and heroin addict, was found dead in a bathroom at the Chelsea Hotel in New York. She also happened to be the girlfriend of the Sex Pistols's bassist Sid Vicious, who was quickly accused of her murder. Less than 6 months later, he died of a heroin overdose and the case was closed. The death fo Sid and Nancy has passed into rock legend and has only added to the controversial and notorious image of the Sex Pistols and punk music. At the request of Sid's mother, who committed suicide in 1996, rock author and punk expert Alan G Parker has devoted himslef to discovering WHO KILLED NANCY? By interviewing 182 people including close friends such as Don Letts and Glen Matlock and re-examining NYPD evidence, he reveals what he believes happened that night in room 100.

- Bonus Stories; Alan G Parker's story

On October 12th 1978, Nancy Spungen was found dead, slumped against the bathroom wall of room 100 in the Chelsea Hotel, New York City. Nancy was the girlfriend of Sex Pistols bass guitarist, Sid Vicious. Barely coherent from drug abuse and other excess', and with a history of violence and unruly behaviour, Vicious was quickly charged with the killing and then promptly died of a drug overdose before it went to trial........

Case closed, police happy, but many knew that there was far more to tell...

Director of this piece is one Alan G Parker, a self confessed punk rock fan and a man who has made something of a living out of writing about punk and Sid Vicious in particular. Alan is the same age as myself, someone who was in the first year of senior school when punk rock exploded on to the British public, and just like me, it impacted to the point that we still wear our punk ethos like a badge of belief more than honour. Does that make him biased for finally presenting facts about the events surrounding Nancy's death? Does it make me foolish or in biased league with him for trumpeting this picture? All I can personally say is that many many punks from back in the day have always been baffled as to why no in-depth investigation was forthcoming after Vicious left the mortal coil and thus closed the Nancy Spungen case. Here, finally you are presented with evidence and interviews that will at least give you the chance to make an informed decision. Rest assured, tho, that I'm fully aware that Sid may well still have done it, but presented with the facts, both medically, and incredibly by unreleased police evidence, it appears unlikely......but that's just me of course!

If many outside of the punk rock circles actually care is another thing?

If this documentary had major financial backing you would be justified in expecting more. As it is, well... it is what it is, a guy with a bit of video kit chasing up an idea and doing a pretty good job. Weaknesses are the artsy depiction of Nancy bleeding to death - pretty corny - and a couple of grating times where the Pistols were shown on stage but with the non-Pistols soundtrack playing. But overall, not a bad documentary. Make sure to watch the extras because some of the best material is in there, including an exploration of the notion that the Rockets Redglare was involved.

While the subject matter remains interesting after all these years, this latest look at the death's of Nancy Spungen and Sid Vicious has two glaring flaws.
While the access to those around Sid and Nancy at the time is well presented, the constant need to fill the gaps between with post punk animations and mock up video footage of Sid and Nancy lookalikes is unnecessary and very quickly becomes jarring.
The second flaw is common to all documentaries and films that tell this story, and that is the sad fact that it is very difficult to care much for the central characters. Neither come across as being very nice people and it is hard to get beyond the thought that it's just a depressing tale of two sad junkies who would have met their demise one way or another. While the 'conspiracy theory' angle is nicely played, it sits all too briefly at the very end of the film and renders the title a little misleading.
All in all, however, it is a very watchable documentary although I did find the extras a little disappointing. The only one of any real interest being Don Letts home movie footage of Sid.

On October 12th 1978, Nancy Spungen was found dead, slumped against the bathroom wall of room 100 in the Chelsea Hotel, New York City.
