F!|_T|-| & T|-|E F\_/ RY 2000 Play

A documentary about the British punk rock band the Sx Pstols, F!|_T|-| & T|-|E F\_/ RY puts the band's story in the context of 1970s Britain. Depicted as a time when pop culture was clownish and sociopolitical divisions were exacerbated by hypocrisy in the government and angst among the people, the film mixes archival footage of 1970s television broadcasts and commercials with live footage of Sx Pstols concerts, interviews with the band, and animated excerpts from director Julien Temple's classic 1980 documentary, SX PSTOLS: THE GRT RCK AND RLL SWNDL. This filmic collage also provides comic relief when the band's nihilistic mantra gets heavy. Which is not to say that the movie makes light of the Sx Pstols story. Its intelligent, reflective narration is given in current-day voice-overs from band members John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten), Paul Cook, Steve Jones, Glen Matlock, and manager Malcolm McLaren. Also included are interviews with bassist Sid Vicious, who died of a heroin overdose in 1979. The film puts the British punk era into 21st-century perspective, hitting on everything from management discrepancies to "over-partying" to the how and why of the way the Sx Pstls wielded such enormous influence with their anti-establishment venom
