A stunning biographical documentary of legendary Jamaican singer-songwriter Bob Marley from Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald (Life In A Day and The Last King Of Scotland). In the making of Marley, Macdonald had unprecedented access to private archive material and the resulting film is an in-depth and enticing exploration of a musical icon. This film is set to enthral Bob Marley fans and gain him countless more admirers.
Play it Again Staff Recommendation
Even if you are not a fan of Marley’s, and music is not your passion, that won’t matter a jot. The passion of director Kevin Macdonald and the great man himself is more than enough to pull you through and keep you entertained, fascinated and moved. Boasting a brilliant soundtrack, some beautiful cinematography, in-depth research and a compelling, emotional narrative style, this is a great achievement. I highly recommend it. >>read more
