Editorial Reviews

On October 12th, 1978, Nancy Spungen, girlfriend to Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious, was found dead at the Chelsea Hotel in New York. Sid was quickly accused of murder. Six months later he died of a heroin overdose and the case was closed. Per Sid’s mother’s request, Alan G. Parker set out on a journey to discover Who Killed Nancy. Through conducting 182 interviews, re-examining NYPD evidence, and gathering a thorough understanding of the zeitgeist of those times, Parker delivers a compelling and moving documentary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fills in Some Cracks March 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Make no mistake, this is a Sid & Nancy documentary. Not a 89 minute probe into Nancy's death, which I was a bit disappointed by. Since its called Who Killed Nancy, I expected more questions answered. But should you rent this? Well, that's actually a very hard question. The Sex Pistols' story is glossed over almost completely. So people new to the story would be better off with The Filth and the Fury or even Sid & Nancy (despite it's veracity problems). If you're like me and have read/seen many things about punk rock already, watch this only if you'll be satisfied with a few new details and pictures.

I must say I've never read a book on Sid Vicious, only others where he was a part of the stories. Consequently, if you've read Alan G. Parker's books on Sid, you'll probably know everything already. I was actually surprised by how the interviewees focused on Sid's "vicious" side. While they admit Sid "couldn't fight sleep," he had some sort of mental problem that made him prone to attack people anyway. The original Sex Pistols bass player's flatmate is interviewed and has a few interesting stories about Sid's violent side as well. Namely, that Sid grabbed a cat, hung it by a noose and just watched it die. It could all be BS, though let's not forget Sid's lyric, "I killed a cat" from My Way.

There's one scene that made this movie worth the $2.99 Amazon rental for me: a brief picture of Nancy with hideous cuts on her face. In Deborah Spungen's (Nancy's mom) book And I Don't Want to Live This Life Anymore, she details how Nancy would have these wounds marring her face that were supposedly by random people on the street. But in their last phone conversation, Nancy admitted to her mom Sid was responsible for all of them (that's in the book, not this movie).

3.0 out of 5 stars Love Kills (but Sid never would) March 24, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD expecting a detailed investigation into the life and death of Nancy Spungen, but it is mostly interviews with the same cast of former punks and hangers-on that I have pretty much read about before recounting tales of the charming and disarmingly myopic Sid Vicious. I should have expected the focus to be almost exclusively on Sid since this is an Alan Parker project. This film continues the tradition of painting Nancy and/or Sid's mom as his downfall. Maybe someday Nancy will get some equal time. The only in-depth piece on Nancy that I'm aware of is her mother's heartbreaking book "And I Don't Want to Live This Life". Tragic as her life was, Nancy is an intriguing character who deserves closer examination. Behind the Nauseating Nancy monicker is a possibly undiagnosed schizophrenic who never received the care she needed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New Here January 24, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a bit disappointed in this movie. The music wasn't that great and the re-enactment scenes were a bit cheesy. Some new things came to light, but all in all, I wish I hadn't spent the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Who Killed Nancy"--Movie Rental November 28, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you liked the film--"Sid & Nancy"--Then You should have
watched this film first. Don't get me wrong Gary Oldman--did a
Great Job in playing Sid--But this gives you more of an In--depth
View of how it was from the people that where around, and how it
Really was, a few reasons--for why things happen, and Maybe the
Person actually behind Nancy's death.,
Unlike the New York Police Dept--Just another Junkie dead--He
was Nancy's Killer--Now he's dead---case closed.
Also--Sadly--what people will do to score drugs--once their hooked,
to supple their habit.
Now I really want to read the book that Nancy's Mom wrote--
"I don't wanna Live this Life"

4.0 out of 5 stars Far better than I expected. March 30, 2014
By Swagner
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This kept me interested the entire way through and actually made a pretty good argument for Sid's innocence. It was much better, much more engaging and much better produced that I'd expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a world! June 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Having read Deborah Spungen's book "And I Don't Want to Live This Life", I knew about the tragic life that family lived because of Nancy's obvious personality disorder (schizophrenia?), and it played to absolute brilliance by Chloe Webb in the fictionalized film "Sid & Nancy", it isn't surprising so many people didn't like, and even hated her. And because of the book, we know Sid always maintained his innocence, as he declared in public, as well as in letters written to Mrs. Spungen, it is quite plausible someone else did murder Nancy. What was amazing to me, one of the interviewees even sketched what the "killer" looked like based on his first hand observations of this man. But going so far as re-opening the case, I think the only purpose would be for the peace of mind for the Spungen family, ripped apart by Nancy at home, and by her actions once she was on her own. As for Sid, I has nothing but contempt for him after watching this documentary. This opinion was formed after an interviewee talked about a deplorable thing Sid did in this man's presence. I can't go into detail. This doc would be a great companion piece if it were to be released with a DVD version of "DOA: A Rite of Passage", another fascinating look into the punk movement. Add "Party Monster" to the mix and you have a great quadruple feature!

VERY Interesting. Makes the case that perhaps Nancy was not murdered by Sid after all. Also shows how much she was generally disliked by her peers. Read more

It's just a great punk documentary. There's a bunch of speculating on Nancy but that's about it. If you love the 70s UK punk world, you'll sop this up with a biscuit.
