Clash, The: Rude Boy
Set in the U.K. of 1978 and filmed as a fictional documentary, Rude Boy follows Ray (Ray Gange) as he quits his job in a London sex shop to become a roadie for the most exciting live band in the country - The Clash. Part character study, part "rockumentary", Rude Boy portrays the disillusionment of youth at a time of economic decline in late '70s Britain.
At the center of it all, however, is the most stunning, furiously alive and visually superior footage of The Clash that has ever been recorded. Filmed on the road with the band during their 1978 "Clash on Patrol" and "Sort It Out" U.K. tours, the film captures the frenetic live energy of one of rock's most influential and exciting bands.
With digitally remastered audio and loads of fantastic extras, this long-awaited DVD release is the Clash document that fans have been waiting for.
