On October 12th, 1978, Nancy Spungen was found stabbed to death in a bathroom at the Chelsea Hotel, New York. Her lover Sid Vicious, bassist for punk rock legends The Sex Pistols, was immediately arrested for her murder, and died of a drugs overdose whilst awaiting trial. Alex Cox's seminal film takes us on a darkly humorous, visually stunning journey that begins with Sid and Nancy's initial meeting during the rise of British Punk during the late seventies and follows their decline into nightmarish, drug induced squalor in New York City. Visceral, unflinching and ultimately tragic, this is the dark side of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll. Love kills.
