Watch this film!,
This review is from: Fire In Babylon [DVD]  (DVD)I grew up knowing of the West Indies cricket team as a formidable sporting team. But it was not until I watched this film that I realised what a staggering group of people that team really were.
Growing up in England, I remember the complaints over the aggression of the West Indies bowling. Looking at those accusations in the light of the racism - both within the sport and in the wider world - that they were fighting made me see the whole era in a totally new light.
Hearing those guys tell of their development first as a cricket team and then as spokesmen for civil rights is an amazing history lesson - but hell, this film isn't just an instructive and enlightening documentary - it is gripping, adrenalin pumping stuff, and also bloody funny at times. You have got to love Bunny Wailer. Another legend.
A film full of legends. You must watch this film.
