Metadata:

“With a piece in his hand, he takes on the man” was a slogan for the film upon its release in 1972. Now, almost 50 years later, The Harder They Come is still electric with the feeling of discovery. In a blend of Scarface-like crime drama and musical, reggae star Jimmy Cliff plays a country boy in search of fame through Jamaica, under the guises of laborer, recording artist, convict, ganja dealer, and outlaw folk hero. This game-changer forever blew the doors off the perception of what foreign art cinema looks like—and it has not lost a drop of its cool, its edge, or its way of making you dance. Contains explicit content, including violence and drug references.
