  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
With a career that spanned on 26 months, the Sex Pistols have been the subject of several documentaries and feature films, but Jullien Temple

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits image quality typical of documentaries. Film footage varies from color to black-and-white to animation and from film origination to video origination, and ranges from extremely soft to generally sharp, and from solid (but undefined) to excessively grainy. As with, in my opinion, all documentaries, the viewer is probably least concerned with the image quality and more drawn by the content.

The Dolby(r) Digital 2.0 matrixed soundtrack is unconventional in that the audio is the mix of classic hits in surround sound, accompanying sound from archival film and television clips as well as unique original material, and narrative and anecdotal dialogue. The soundstage is generally atmospheric throughout with the surrounds engaged moderately to maintain a sense of involvement in the soundtrack. The dialogue is clearly lacking, with a strident, "close-up" presence that compromises comfort with listening.
