Rest in peace, Malcom McLaren.
The Filth and the Fury is Julien Temple's " inspired and brilliantly executed documentary" (AV Club) about the notorious punk rock band, the Sex Pistols, who were managed by McLaren--who must have had his handful with this lot. "The movie traces all the band's lurid trials -- the pious condemnations, the knife attacks, the disastrous Sid Vicious," wrote James Sullivan in the SF Chronicle. "Above all, it makes one thing clear: This group was wickedly funny," McLaren here is actually represented by a person in a weird rubber mask over McLaren's voice. A more McLaren-centric film about the Pistols is Temple's earlier Great Rock N' Roll Swindle, which Pistol Johnny Rotten apparently hated.
