Sid & Nancy | Ratings & Reviews

"Though dark and harrowing, explicit and unsparing, the movie proves a riveting biography of these burnt-out icons and their iconoclastic half-decade."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"A few too many moralistic foreshadowings, but most of the time Cox's situations and characters develop on their own eloquently entropic terms."

Chicago ReaderChicago Reader

"A film that never feels remotely real, content to wallow in dead-rock-star mythology and tedious druggie indulgences."

Time OutTime Out

"Cox's humour... compensates for the grim subject matter."

The Irish TimesThe Irish Times

"It's a hard film to watch at times, as Vicious plunges deeper into his heroin-induced slump, but (it is) told with skill and compassion..."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"Once we sense a glimmer of talent and accept these people as human beings, the tragedy of their drug use resonates enormously."

Chicago TribuneChicago Tribune

"Spiking the filth and fury of tainted love with disarming humour and lyricism, Cox doesn’t just plot an obvious decline..."

Total FilmTotal Film

"The storyline is grim and morbid but is leavened by the humour."


"A... Beckettian masterpiece about those two prisoners of futility, Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen..."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"It’s a solid film, and definitely interesting as biography. Yet it’s the sequences where Cox allows his mind to wander... where the film comes into its own."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"The definitive pic on the punk phenomenon."


"The performances of Oldman and Webb, both stage-trained veterans, are simply astonishing."

TV GuideTV Guide

"(Cox) and his actors pull off the neat trick of creating a movie full of noise and fury, and telling a meticulous story right in the middle of it."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"It's not every film maker who credits special thanks to both Luis Bunuel and Dee Dee Ramone, but then Mr. Cox doesn't fit any recognisable mold."
