Forty years ago this film – the first feature from Jamaica – shook the world. With its infectious new sound of reggae music, its radical street fighter politics, and its swagger, it made Jimmy Cliff a star. The violent, swashbuckling story of the naïve young singer Ivan, aka Pretty Boy (Cliff), who turns outlaw after being played for a fool one too many times on the corrupt streets of Kingston, still thrills, enthralls, and kicks ass. (Perry Henzell; Jamaica; 1972; 120 min)
