Searching for Sugar Man

Searching for Sugar Man – USA – 2012 – Documentary.  A story that, if it wasn’t true, you wouldn’t believe it.  The story of Rodriguez, the greatest ’70s rock icon who never was. The film follows two South African fans who set out to find out what really happened to their hero.  “A first-rate doc about the unsung Latino Bob Dylan who brought the spirit of American civil rights and Vietnam War anti-establishment protests to South Africa’s fight against apartheid.” Mark Jackson, Epoch Times.  “A gloriously inspirational comeback tale that leaves you feeling anything is possible.”  Douglas Edwards, ComingSoon.net.  “Part music documentary, part mystery, all inspirational homage to unrecognized genius everywhere.” Mike Scott, Times-Picayune.   “It’s the triumph of this documentary that we feel, after learning so much about a game-changed yet weirdly unchangeable street messiah, who we’re told still lives in his demi-hovel, that there is more to learn yet.” Nigel Andrews, Financial Times.  “Fortunately filmmaker Bendjelloul decided that Rodriguez’s story needed to be told – one of the most fascinating biographies ever put on film.” Bruce Bennet, Spectrum (St. George, Utah).
