Sid and Nancy (1986)

This is a couple to remember if you are interested into history of punk rock music. Sid Vicious was the bassist of the Sex Pistols, the group that gave fame to punk rock worldwide. Sid's real name was John Ritchie and he was given that nick by an old friend when his hamster 'Sid' bit John and he said that 'Sid is really vicious'. Quite not a normal guy with addiction to drugs, fights and violence. He met Nancy at a place and he ask for her to find him some drugs. This was the beginning of an abnormal relationship full of shouts, pain, fear, paranoia and drugs. Nancy started manipulating Sid and the others members of the group didn't like her because of her attitude and her character. She was suicidal and Sid followed her into this trip to hell. Nice performances, Gary Oldman was really representative on his role and the plot was fine even if I wanted it to be more completed.
