An original 1982 UK Quad movie poster for the theatrical release of Countryman, a seminal Jamaican cult  art house action/adventure, directed by Dickie Jobson and produced by Chris Blackwell who created Island Records. It tells the story of a Jamaican fisherman whose solitude is shattered when he rescues two Americans from the wreckage of a plane crash. The fisherman, called Countryman, is hurled into a political plot by the dangerous Colonel Sinclair. Countryman uses his knowledge of the terrain and his innate combat skills to survive and protect his new friends from being caught by Sinclair.

This film is full of mystic adventure, Jamaican culture, political messages, ganja smoking, and Rastafarian preachiness. All are complemented by plenty of great Reggae tunes, described as a tribute to the legend Bob Marley, whose music used a bunch throughout the film. Decent performances all-round from the cast, and a solid effort from Edwin 'Countryman' Lothan, a real life mystical Rastafarian fisherman, who plays himself in the film. He was a well known character locally for his spiritual personality, athletic ability and trademark attire of swimming shorts and nothing else (not even shoes).
