Moviedrome Mondays: The Harder They Come (1972)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s introduction to director Perry Henzell’s 1972 Jamaican cult crime classic The Harder They Come. Readers can also read Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was June 19, 1994 (read here). Not much to add here except that I agree with every single that Cox has so eloquently (as always) stated about this influential film. Last, but not least, it features one of (If not) the greatest music soundtracks ever (read here).

Since I could not find a link to it’s actual original theatrical trailer onĀ youtube, go search on youtube for various clips of the film

Here is a youtube video link of British film critic Mark Kermode talking about it as one of his BFI player choices of the week
