Rude Boy

The Clash were at the height of their powers as a live band when they agreed to take part in the making of Jack Hazan and David Mingay's cinéma vérité look at one disaffected punk rock fan who briefly walks off the dole to roadie for his favorite band.

Overview

The Clash were at the height of their powers as a live band when they agreed to take part in the making of Jack Hazan and David Mingay's cinéma vérité look at one disaffected punk rock fan who briefly walks off the dole to roadie for his favorite band. The movie isn't much to write home about, but the footage of the Clash on stage is superb, and fans have Epic/Legacy, the group's record label, to thank for this North American DVD release of Rude Boy, which is easily the best NTSC presentation of the movie to date. Rude Boy has been given a letterboxed transfer to disc in the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1; the source materials are exceptionally clean, and while this film has often looked muddy and scratchy in the past, this disc is crisp and well-detailed, with a superb color balance. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo from the film's original two-channel sound mix, and it sounds great when pumped through a good stereo system. The dialogue is in English, with no subtitles or multiple language options included subtitles would have been quite welcome, given the thick accents of many of the on-screen participants. Bonus materials include two performances shot for the film but not included in the final cut, two songs from an appearance by the Clash on British television in 1978, seven short scenes deleted from the movie, and the original theatrical trailer. Also included are recent interviews with leading man Ray Gange who comes off as a great deal brighter and more perceptive than he does in the movie, Clash road manager Johnny Green, and directors Hazan and Mingay, as well as a gallery of photos from the film. The menus feature artwork from cartoonist Ray Lowry whose work graced the inner sleeves for London Calling, and the DVD includes a much appreciated "Just Play the Clash" option that lets fans cue up the songs without the surrounding story. Rude Boy may be flawed, but Clash fans love it for good reasons, and this DVD edition shows it to its best advantage.
