  3. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    It's full of punk energy and the idea of campfire-interviews was pretty good, but apart from that it's just a conventional biography.

  4. KatDeg's rating of the film Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    i don't really understand why it's set in the states and why they interviewed certain people but in general it sums up the philosophy behind joe strummer pretty nicely.

  5. Thomas's rating of the film Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    Love The Clash, this was so so. Not really informative.

  7. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    Worth seeing: The movie covers an important part of pop history and confronts it with a bewildering audio and video montage combining documentary material with found footage from different sources. But I had rather done without trivial campfire statements of people like Johnny Depp or Bono about authenticity, while at the same time the documents show Strummer’s primarily posing attitude.

  8. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy's rating of the film Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    Be prepared for the Strummer Hollywood bio-pic!! woot!

  9. mjgildea's rating of the film Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    The archive interviews with Strummer and the people who actually knew him were informative and pretty cool. Unfortunately you've got to sit through a lot of hobo camp-style interviews (who's idea was the campfire? Really) with a bunch of pretentious shitbags (does anyone seriously give a shit what Johnny Depp thinks of The Clash? Really?) who come close to making The Future is Unwritten unwatchable.

  10. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    Stylish but meandering documentary from director Julien Temple gets off to an intriguing start - with some insightful interviews and clever incorporation of footage - but it fails to sustain its energy. Joe Strummer is an interesting subject, and there's a lot of great music, but this unfortunately turns out to be a an only modestly compelling "rockumentary".
