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.

An absorbing doco on a cultural legend. Not uncritical of his many faults, but his greatness shines through.

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.

seemed a bit of a tool

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.

Doesn't seem interesting.

Fantastic, especially so if you are a fan of The Clash..
½ February 25, 2012
Great documentary about Joe Strummer's life. I still prefer The Clash: Westway to the World documentary that was made 6 years before though.
February 12, 2012
An interesting look into the front-man of one of the world's most popular punk-rock bands of the late 70's and early 80's. A must-see for fans of the Clash.
