Searching for Sugar Man (2012, D: Malik Bendjelloul)

"Two South Africans set out to discover what happened to their unlikely musical hero, the mysterious 1970s rock 'n' roller, Rodriguez."


I watched this documentary tonight, and recommend everyone else to check it out.

It's a great story and definitely worth your time.

I haven't seen the movie yet but I certainly recommend checking out the two CD reissues for Rodriguez, put out by Light In The Attic Records.

I watched this on Starz and I liked it. I hope this story was real and not scripted or staged .

Rodriguez is pretty humble.

This was a positive movie compared to Last Days Here.

Rented this on Netflix a bit back and really enjoyed it.
