Happy birthday, Stewart Copeland!

Stewart Copeland has been one of our favorite drummers since the heyday of The Police. And he's been one of our favorite film composers since his stunning ("expressionistic" per one film critic) score for Francis Ford Coppola's rumblefish. So we're delighted to wish him a happy birthday and recognize his body of work, and call your attention to films that are graced by Copeland's music right here on Jaman!

US Jaman users can enjoy Ken Loach's Raining Stones, an earthy but moving comedy-drama of a working class man's struggle to get his daughter a communion dress.

And viewers around the world can enjoy FutureSport, director Ernest Dickerson's action-packed and enjoyable tale of extreme athletes battling for peace in a troubled future.

Or if you just want to hear some fine drumming RIGHT NOW, there's this:

Happy Birthday, S.C.!
