Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Leaves behind a surprising afterglow and allows you to appreciate Joe Strummer's warmth.
Fresh: A beautiful, evocative collage composed of concert footage, photographs, interviews and film clips, as well as interviews with people who knew him, the film is a rigorously thorough biography and an impassioned accolade.
Fresh: The singer's life is compressed into a two-hour montage of interviews, vintage video snippets and artsy filigree in Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten.
Fresh: Temple has plenty of cinematic tricks and willing interview subjects.
No Elvis, Beatles, or The Rolling Stones. Just Joe.
An incredible movie about an incredible man. Long live the memory of Joe Strummer.
Thank you Julien Temple
Like many people I was one of those who's life was literally changed at a young age by being exposed to The Clash. His legacy lives on through those that knew and remember him. As well as those of us that never knew him, but were just as affected by his charisma and insight. This documentary gives great justice to his memory.
Though I will never fade
Or get lost in this daze
Though I will disappear
Into the street parade
I heard of this from the Ron and Fez show...
Not to be too simplistic, but Joe Strummer just rocked. The movie is amazing and hopefully you'll enjoy as much as I did. Thanks to Ron Bennington and Julien Temple, without the interview between the two, I might not have known this film existed...RT
