Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten Reviews
Joe Strummer: I like you to write punk rock warlord. warlord being one word
fave part when joe pissed off with the interviewer. a very protective mate :)
This doc also did a great job of showing Joe's flaws (adolescent beginning, idealist towards the end) but especially over all else was his intelligence throughout these developments which seemed to always find a way to prevail.
Throughout the debauchery of all the stardom, Joe always seems to (at least try to) keep a good head on his shoulders, and the thing that sets him apart, his heart. This is what made the Clash so great; diverse in style, but with Joe-- punk rock with heart.
Great film. I love how they edited in parts of his old radio show; a very creative use of VO, allowing Joe to be our DJ throughout the doc.
Solo para entusiastas de la banda, de resto es para dormir seguro.
Interesting interviews with a rather varied bunch of celebrities, indicating Strummer and The Clash's influence. Some the interviews are a bit unnecessary, and are just padding, eg Johnny Depp and John Cusack. Most of the rest are insightful though - even Bono has something unpretentious and useful to say.
Great music, especially rare live footage of The Clash, and Strummer's other bands.
I guess you have to be a fan of The Clash, as I am, to appreciate this. If you are, well worth the watch.
