Plot Summary
Julien Temple's film is a fitting tribute to one of Britain's most influential and best-loved musicians, best known as the front man of The Clash, who mellowed in later life into fronting his new band, the Mescaleros. Temple's advantage is that as a chronicler of punk from its earliest days, he could call on his own archive footage as well as that shot by others over the years.

  • Julian Temple, the British music-documentary director who helmed the 2000 Pistols' flick "The Filth and the Fury," has done such cinematic justice to the punk humanist born John Graham Mellor, who died of a congenital heart defect in 2002. show more

  • The triumph of this fond, uncontainable documentary is that it lets you hear that voice again loud and clear. show more

  • Its moving narrative requires little in the way of embellishment, but Temple’s documentary sometimes becomes too clever for its own good. show more
