With some brilliant visual techniques and a brilliant soundtrack (obviously), the Future is Unwritten is a magnificent film that gives a nice insight to the life of Joe Strummer and the rise of The Clash.
A very great documentary. With all the interviews taking place around a campfire in L.A. with a radio playing Clash music and the occasional group sing-a-long with an acoustic guitar. All the clips of Joe and The Clash are excellent and really reveal just how great Strummer was.
I've heard accounts that this film largely glosses over Joe's image and casts him in a light unfairly lionizing him post humously. Some of the interviews do come off as hero worship and of course anything that Bono attaches his name to is bound to draw the ire of the anti-arena indie crowd. But none-the-less an interesting glimpse of a man and his band that changed rock history.
