The Filth and The Fury

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The Sex Pistols were in existence for only 26 months and recorded only one album, yet they changed the face of music forever. The Filth and The Fury is an irreverent, intimate and shocking portrait of arguably the most influential and certainly the most infamous rock group of all time. It documents the story of The Sex Pistols, charting their rise from the litter-stacked back-streets of '70's London through their crucifixion by the British tabloids, canonisation by hundreds of thousands of fans around the world and ultimate implosion on tour in America. Along the way myths are debunked, scores are settled and the words of the band are heard for the first time. Culled primarily from the band's own 20-hour-plus archive of never-before-seen footage, The Filth and The Fury captures the very essence of the punk movement.
