The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle

The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle

A bizarre mockumentary attempting to put The Sex Pistols into some kind of cultural and artistic context which the broad masses can comprehend turns into a wondrous collection of live performances, interviews and set-pieces. Telling the story from manager Malcolm McLaren’s viewpoint remains as contentious a point as his attempts to contain The Sex Pistols in some kind of narrative.
