Searching for Sugar Man

Searching for Sugar Man ★★★★

I certainly did not see that one coming. Like most people around the world, I had never heard of Sixto Rodriguez before I started reading about this documentary a while ago. And what a documentary it is. It's funny how sometimes people with great talent make it while others don't. I haven't heard Sixto Rodriguez's albums but the songs we hear throughtout the films are fantastic and it really makes you wonder why he isn't as well known in America as he is in South Africa. This movie takes you on a very emotional journey. It makes a 180 degrees turn right in the middle, and takes you somewhere else. The less you now about it, the better it is. Poignant!
