1.0 out of 5 stars The fall and fall of a documentary..., 9 July 2014

This review is from: The Rise And Fall Of The Clash [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
The fall and fall of a documentary...
By Jcee - July 9, 2014
I found this documentary unbearable and boring and turned it off after 30 minutes. From the opening sleep inducing voice of Pearl Harbour , to the bored sounding narrator , to the recycled footage that has been pulled from the MUCH BETTER Clash documents before this.
It didn't pull me in at all and aside from the sparce Mick Jones interview moments, I didnt find any of the interview subjects interesting or hold any credence in their stories. Westway To World is the best chronicle of the rise and fall of The Clash, from the mouths of those that lived it , The Clash. Who cares what a bunch of mostly critics, magazine writers and groupies say?! Especially ones as boring as these!

Stick with Westway To The World, the at times floored in format Strummer documentary The Future Is Unwritten and The Clash film Rude Boy as the best documents on the band.

This came accross as misdirected mess to me, and I am a big Clash fan. Im all for objective views and different directions for documentaries. I have seen multiple on David Bowie for example that are all different and interesting . Just not of shite like this!

I have to be honest, I FULLY agree with your review. Just when you think they can't scrape anything else from The Clash and their legacy, they come up with bilge like this.
