There are not a lot of Jamaican movies out there, I’m referring to movies that where written, produced and acted by Jamaicans about our society, however the ones that we do have are a must watch!
I believe the first Jamaican film I watched was, The Harder They Come with Jimmy Cliff and I loved it from beginning to the end!
Its about a poor Jamaican man named Ivan (Jimmy Cliff) who decided the life of crime was best for him after trying to make a honest living and failed.
Even today I appreciate the talents of both the actors and writers of this movie. This is because they shed light on life in rural Jamaica back in the 70s. I would recommend anyone to watch it, you will not be disappointed.
Now, one of my favorite Jamaican movie is Smile Orange (An old Comedy classic). This movie had me laughing from start to finish ( I just love to laugh)!
It follows the day to day movements of the main character Ringo, who’s a hotel waiter and con man!
I had the pleasure for remaking this in the form of a play for my Theatre Arts class in high school using the book “Old Story Time and Smile Orange”.
And so if you press me, I have to say the top ten Jamaica Movies are:
