There's nothing pretty about the crowds pouring into Brixton Academy for a five-night stand by the Sex Pistols. Toothless, debauched hooligans of all ages make for one unsightly audience. But veteran director Julien Temple relishes the ugliness and focuses on it, connecting the band to their origins, which is something the music fails to do.
The concert isn't that compelling, but a Johnny Rotten tour bus ride across London makes the DVD worth seeing. Lydon hilariously ruminates on everything wrong with modern civilization while calling innocent onlookers unmentionable names. His skilful brand of entertaining rudeness.
