Redemption Song: Red Hand of Fate [1979]

Johnny Greene and a roadie... found a rehearsal room... (it) was at the rear of a garage, the kind of premises you might see in American gangster films as heists are planned... Here, hunkered together with no visible means of financial support, the Clash would rigorously write and rehearse the new songs that would emerge as London Calling, which time would judge one of the finest rock 'n' roll albums ever made...

Rude Boy (1979)

Rude Boy does little more than remind us of the Clash's greatness; as such, it's a cinematic failure but a musical necessity.
