Sid and Nancy
In Sid and Nancy, he plays Sex Pistols guitarist Sid Vicious. He meets Nancy Spugen (Chloe Webb) one day and falls in love with her, resulting into one of the most notorious love affairs of all time.
Although I do listen to music frequently, I have to admit I haven't heard any music by the Sex Pistols. That is, until I saw Sid and Nancy. I'm not a huge fan of punk rock, but I liked a few of the songs.
Oldman's performance as Vicious, like I said in the intro, should have gotten at least some awards recognition. But alas, it was not. I just hope that Oldman won't get a honorary award to make up for previous snubs. AMPAS, give the man a damn nomination already!
My Rating: ****1/2
