Sid and Nancy elevates the tragic lives of Sex Pistol Sid Vicious and groupie Nancy Spungen into a mythic Romeo and Juliet for the post-punk era. Director Alex Cox brings a bizarre tenderness to this grisly love story that ends in a controversial murder. Criterion's special edition adds another dimension to this cult classic with commentary by stars Chloë Webb and Gary Oldman, screenwriter Abbe Wool, cultural critic Greil Marcus, filmmakers Julien Temple and Lech Kowalski. And, in an exclusive interview, punk rocker Elliot Kidd reopens the mystery of Nancy's death, recounting his version of her last hours.
