Searching For Sugar Man
Searching For Sugar Man is Malik Bendjelloul's fascinating documentary on the musician known only as Rodriguez. A young man who released two albums in the late sixtie's/early seventies, that went absolutely nowhere in his home country of the USA, but became smash hits (unbeknownst to Rodriguez or anyone else associated with him) in apartheid era South Africa. To give away too much more information starts to chip away at the documentary itself, so I will simply say that it's a great and uplifting documentary and I highly recommend it.
