Searching for Sugar Man
A Documentary About Sixto Rodriguez by Malik Bendjellou
This is an amazing story and film. It is about a poet/folksinger living in Detroit, Michigan whose albums did not fare well in the US in the early 1970s; however, unbeknownst to him, were wildly successful in South Africa and inspirational to the anti-apartheid movement. The movie follows the search of two Rodriguez fans as they unravel the mystery of what really happened to him and the outcome is truly fantastic!
If you are a Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, or Leonard Cohen fan, I am sure you will love Rodriguez.
I hope you enjoy this remarkable film and please leave your comments on this blog post.
This movie is available on Netflix; or you may purchase it from Amazon USA or Canada.
