“Merging documentary and fiction, Rude Boy follows roughneck Ray Gange as he drops his Soho sex-shop job to roadie for The Clash—the most fiery, revolutionary rock ​’n’ roll band of the era, seen in this film at the dizzying peak of their powers. Ray plays observer to The Clash’s legendary 1978 Rock Against Racism concert in London’s Victoria Park and of their studio recording of Give ​’Em Enough Rope. Set against a background of riots, racist and anti-racist demonstrations, and police hostility towards Black British youth, this unforgettable, absorbing film presents a portrait of a U.K. on the brink of Thatcherism, and a moment when subcultural shock troops met those of a rising right wing in the streets” (Metrograph Pictures). Rude Boy was notoriously disowned by The Clash. A Bigger Splash, Jack Hazan’s 1973 portrait of painter David Hockney, screened here in 2019. –The Cinematheque
