The definitive biography of the group's fall from grace after they made it to SHEA Stadium USA and were on their way being a smashing success in the world! This story is one of the most shocking of the music industry of the 1980s. The story has never been told before: The Collapse of The Clash unravels as the ultimate rock 'n' roll tragedy. Written by
Any film that claims to document the rise of the Clash and then barely mentions London Calling and Sandinista is not a good film. Most of the film centers on manager Bernie Rhodes' influence and the demise of the band once Mick Jones left the group. Not featuring London Calling is simply inexcusable. It is one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time. It also put the band on the map in America.
I would only recommend this film to people who don't like the Clash and want to engage in a little schadenfreude about how pathetic the group came to an end with the dreadful Cut the Crap album. This film was made by someone who clearly has no love for the group. A complete waste of resources.
There is a documentary called "Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten" that is a far superior look at this great band.
