The first time I watched this I didn't know that despite ostensibly being in English (heavily, heavily accented English), I was supposed to turn on the subtitles. So it was basically only about music. Great music.

If you want to follow the plot... turn on the subtitles.

Brilliant film. Best appreicated on a beaten-up old VHS, and with the appropriate.. accompaniments.

I'm at work and both hulu and youtube are blocked. But if it's that The Harder They Come, they only gave you a few lines of subtitles at the start of each scene, just to get you into the action, then you're on your own. It worked for me (I was amazed.)

Great movie soundtrack, probably the best ever. although Rocky Horror and Repo Man are up there I put The Harder They Come into a whole different league. Jimmy Cliff is on tour right now, but unfortunately his next few dates seem to be occurring with Dave Matthews.
