FULL SYNOPSIS

Filmmaker [[Performer~P113830~Julien Temple~julientemple]] takes a look beyond the guise of the late, anti-establishment icon [[Performer~P113096~Joe Strummer~joestrummer]] to offer a warm portrait of the self-described "mouthy little git" who was born [[Performer~P113096~John Mellor~joestrummer]] and was destined to become the frontman for one of the most influential punk bands ever. A complex figure who would learn to use his gift for music as a means of decompressing his conscience, [[Performer~P113096~Strummer~joestrummer]] is revealed here through unearthed interviews and the illuminating recollections of his closest companions. At times idealistic to a fault, the flawed [[Performer~P13510~Clash~theclash]] singer/songwriter had a special gift for compelling listeners to think as they moved to the music. Vintage performance footage and excerpts from [[Performer~P113096~Strummer~joestrummer]]'s popular BBC radio program offer the ideal musical backdrop for an affectionate tribute to a punk-rock legend. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
