Man oh man the preview made it look good. And directed by Julien Temple?? What the hell happened? I'll tell you what happened. Joe Strummer was a boring ass son of a gun that had an incredible voice and even more incredible lyrics.
Let me break down some notables.
Johnny Depp (??) interviewed in full pirate's regalia. Why Johnny Depp? And why in pirate's garb? You're really going to force me to watch those double chin braids dangle while trying to get a lil' info on The Clash?
Steve Buscemi, Anthony Kiedis, Martin Scorcese interviewed? Why? Fuck it, let's trot out Bill Cosby, Duane "Dog" Chapman and Paula Poundstone for their take on the dude.
Listen to me. STOP interviewing Bono for these films. PLEASE. I've had enough. Do you know he said the exact same thing in the Morrissey doc that he said in the New Order doc? How lame is that? He called both Ian Curtis and Morrissey "an orginal of the species". Fuck you Bono Vox.
Ok, biggest notable. No Paul Simenon. Says a lot if you ask me.
Here's your trailer, but don't be fooled, the trailer rules. The movie SUCKS.
For better examples of Julien Temple's good work see The Great Rock & Roll Swindle, The Filth And The Fury, The Babyshambles "Blinding" video, and the "God Save The Queen" promo video.
