Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten Reviews

  • May 25, 2019

    An interesting view of Joe Strummer life, a collage of pictures, videos (that I can only assume were not so easy to come across) and interviews. I love The Clash so for me the film was half way there even before starting it, but I guess that if you are not a fan, the story is definitely not mind-blowing. Here you see the man behind the legend, and the problem is... as a man he was pretty disappointing.

    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.
