The hard hitting Babylon (1980) not only offers a unique look into the Reggae sound system culture of South London of the early 80’s but also dives in the racial tensions brewing in England’s capital. Babylon is an English cousin to the earlier Jamaica-set films like The Harder They Come and Rockers and is actually vastly superior in cinematic terms and just as valuable as a cultural document.
