Rockers (1978)
Theodoros Bafaloukos,


The music, characters and story of Rockers are just enthralling. It was amazing to see music artists we had only heard in song, alive and well on the screen โ€“ Jacob Miller, Gregory Isaacs, Burning Spear. And how could you not fall in love with the indomitable spirit of Leroy โ€œHorsemouthโ€ Wallace, the iconic reggae drummer who plays a version of himself in the lead role. And then thereโ€™s the music โ€“ chune after chune after chune will have you skanking for days, after. This hilarious, Robin Hood like tale, pitching the poor rastaman against the wealthy business man, has been a must-see for reggae fans for generations.
