The Harder They Come

Double Feature with BABYLON (3:00, 7:30)

1972 • dir Perry Henzell w/Jimmy Cliff • 120 min • DCP

Fifty years on, THE HARDER THEY COME is still electric with the feeling of discovery. This blend of crime drama and reggae music tracks Cliff’s country-boy-in-search-of-fame through Jamaica under the guises of laborer, recording artist, convict, ganja dealer, and outlaw folk hero.

Staff Pick! Casey, Joey: “Come for the greatest soundtrack of all time, stay for the surprisingly emotional and raw crime story.”

“The definitive postcolonial cult-movie musical.”
– Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
