"Rockers" (1978) a film by Theodoros Bafaloukos. Brrrrrrrap! For all those who don't is in session. Originally scripted as a documentary, 'Rockers' blossomed into a full length feature capturing reggae culture at its peak in 1978. The cast is PLANTAINS. Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, Richard "Dirty Harry" Hall, Gregory "Jah Tooth" Isaacs, Jacob "Jakes" Miller, Robbie "Robbie" Shakespeare, Winston Rodney : Burning Spear, Manley Buchanan : Big Youth, Lester Bullocks : Dillinger...the list goes on. Classic, wait a minute...let me retype that sh*t CLASSIC - ya heard. You like reggae? SEE-THIS-FILM. Horsemouth, a drummer living in a ghetto of Kingston plans to make some extra money selling and distributing records. He buys a motorcycle to carry them to the sound systems around the island and struggles to maintain positive vibes when his bike gets tiefed at a local dance. Chappelle obviously saw this sporadic musical performances, and that dude who does the'll see what I mean. CINEMATIC DOPE. -Mr.-
