Searching for Sugar Man

Review: Searching for Sugar Man

Amazing story line

"Searching for Sugarman" is a fabulous South African documentary about Sixto Rodriguez who lives in Detroit and made 2 albums in the early 1970s and completely bombed in the USA. However, he sold more albums than Elvis Presley in South Africa and, after being found by the documentary makers, he has done 4 or 5 sell-out tours to South Africa. He sounds like Bob Dylan in his early days; the music in this film is terrific.
