The Public Image Is Rotten

Johnny Rotten (née John Lydon), lead singer of notorious punk pioneers The Sex Pistols and founder of Public Image Ltd., is the surly subject of this musical documentary. Former and current bandmates—as well as fellow icons like John Waters, Flea, Ad-Rock and Thruston Moore—add their voices to the electrifying archival footage. It suffers a bit by being an "authorized" biography produced by Rotten's childhood friend and manager. But the frontman tries his best to be as acerbic as possible. 105 minutes Unrated.
