Rockers (Blu-Ray) (15)
“One of the most chilled things ever put on film”
Mail On Sunday
Wienerworld proudly presents the Blu-Ray edition of the classic cult reggae film Rockers, to coincide with the film’s 30th anniversary since its release.
A riotous burst of energy and colour, almost documentary in style, Rockers is a cameo-packed gutsy thriller of the dread-locked, ganja-smoking drummer Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace’s attempts to succeed in the cut-throat Jamaican music biz which provides much insight, amusement and education. The cast reads like the ultimate Reggae Hall Of Fame, featuring some of the leading musicians and producers of the day: Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Lee Perry, Dennis Brown, Jacob Miller & Inner Circle, Bunny Wailer, Third World, Big Youth, The Heptones, Kiddus I, Robbie Shakespeare, Leroy Smart, Dillinger and the fantastic Burning Spear.
The film captures reggae at its musical apex with a vibrant and magnificent reggae soundtrack now digitally re-mastered from the original 35mm film made in 1979. Witty and unpretentious, this Blu-Ray version even comes with a glossary of ‘Rasta Patois’.
A ‘must have’ to be bought, savoured and cherished for any ‘dub-wise’ rudeboy!
