Awkweird Me
Searching for Sugar Man (2012)
For those who don’t know, this documentary is about an American musician named Rodriguez who released 2 albums in the early 70s, which didn’t do well at all in the US, but had quite an impact in South Africa. The film follows the attempts to find out just who this man was. I wish I didn’t already know the outcome before I watched this, but I still enjoyed it. It’s a pretty awesome story (even when you learn about the filmmakers’ deliberate omission of certain facts). I’d never heard of him before this film, and now I’m totally a fan of his music. It’s a good, entertaining documentary and I’m sure it would appeal to most people.
