Searching for Sugar Man

Submitted by Druss on Tue, 2013-02-19 14:04

Searching for Sugar Man is a documentary about the artist (Sixto) Rodriguez who released two unsuccessful albums in Detroit in the early 1970s and subsequently faded away from the music business back into what is described as abject poverty. Unbeknownst to him, however, his music became hugely popular in South Africa where his fans were under the impression that he was dead. This documentary retells the story of how two of his South African fans tracked him down in the late 90s.

This movie tried to be 2012's Bourne Identity and falls woefully short. While it captures a bit of the same feel as the Bourne franchise, the script is just so idiotic that it becomes something of a painful watch after a while. I'd give it a 6 if it wasn't for retarded-ness of the stadium scene.
