TITLE SEQUENCE: The Harder They Come
In honor of my upcoming trip to Jamaica, I've decided to talk about one of Jamaica's finest films, the 1972 masterpiece The Harder They Come. First up is the wonderful title sequence that gives us a beautiful look at the countryside of this unique nation that's abundant with culture and brimming with astounding visuals. The Harder They Come is directed by Jamaica native Perry Henzell and stars musical sensation Jimmy Cliff as an aspiring musician named Ivanhoe Martin, whose desperate to make it in the music business. I'll be putting up the full review later tonight, but for now check out the opening title sequence from The Harder They Come.
