This film captures the magic and mystery of a man and artist in a way that transformed me into a Rodriguez fan after a mere one hour and twenty six minutes. How have I (and the world up until 1998, 2012 and even still in 2021) gone so long without knowing and appreciating Rodriguez and his work?
The animation, film footage, home videos and cinematography of each city and Rodriguez himself seem to perfectly introduce and bring to life the energy that is Rodriguez’s music and life force. And I say “seem” because even after becoming completely obsessed with the mystery and then the person, I, like so many others, am still wondering who is Sixto Rodriguez?
Cold Fact and Coming From Reality are now albums that will thankfully be ever present in my life. And I will undoubtedly forever be pondering the enigma and peaceful beauty that is the life and legacy of Sixto Rodriguez.
