Searching for Sugar Man

Font Size:

Searching for Sugar Man, Directed by Malik Bendjelloul, follows the investigation by South African fans into the legend of Rodriguez, a singer whose music and lyrics are reminiscent of Bob Dylan with a voice not dissimilar to James Taylor. Rodriguez was discovered playing in a bar in Detroit, signed to Sussex Records and made two albums Cold Fact and Coming from Reality. The albums flopped and he was dropped by the record label. A bootleg copy of his album Cold Fact made its way to South Africa and was a sensation, described by fans as the soundtrack of their generation. Rumoured to have committed suicide on-stage, Rodroguez’s fans set out to discover what really happened to him. The soundtrack alone is worth seeing the movie for, but the story itself is engrossing – fact can be stranger than fiction!
