I watched the movie Sid & Nancy last night. I haven't seen it in awhile. I think that the movie really captures the intimacy and realness of the iconic characters. The fact that Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen actually existed and chose to live the lives they did is what captures my interest. It makes you think about the human existence, the history of culture, why people like the things they like and become who they become. It's dark and dismal for sure, yet I can't help but like it. There are some great scenes, and one of my favorites is the end, how they portray the death of Sid Vicious.
