4.0 out of 5 stars "OK, Ready or Rot!", 23 Mar 2011
This review is from: The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle [DVD] (DVD)
Indeed, good vintage footage mixed with comedic animation and some really 'bad' acting (sorry guys) - but that was the point! I have been a life-long Pistols fan and have seen the Swindle countless times. It is a timeless classic and a damn good insight into the chaos, the anarchy and the demise of one of the industry's most iconic carnations. My only critism is that Malcolm McLaren knew that only too well and the film is (although tongue-in-cheek), a self-promotion exercise on the part of him which is why John Rotten/Lydon wished no part in it. Worth a watch if you know little or nothing of the Pistols but I strongly recommend watching the Filth & the Fury right after to get right down to the grass roots of what the band really stood for. I agree with one previous reviewer, best scene ....... Sid answering the phone and mumbling "Ok ready or Rot" in response to the 'Receiever' before itching his balls through a pair of stained 'swastika' undies, threatening his own reflection in the mirror with a broken bottle and then pretending he could ride a motorcycle! Sex Pistols - The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle [DVD]
