The Harder They Come

(Perry Henzell, 1972, Jamaica)
120mins, 35mm Projection

Highlighted by Jimmy Cliff’s star-making performance both on the screen and in the soundtrack, Henzell’s age-old saga of power and corruption in the reggae music industry was based on the notorious story of Rhyging and his ascendance to legend. Serving as a contemporary blueprint for DePalma’s rendition of Scarface, The Harder They Come moves at breakneck speed. Packed with visual and aural flare, ears will be buzzing with one of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time. (In English and Jamaican Patois with subtitles.)
