Sixto Rodriguez - Searching for Sugar Man
A memorable recent evening watching Searching for Sugar Man. Its' difficult to discuss this utterly sublime little film without essential spoilers. So I won't. If you, like me, had/have never heard of Sixto Jesus Rodriguez, so much the better. Don't do any online search or review checking, just go see the movie and let it just unfold. This is one of the most poignant, absorbing, heartfelt and humanitarian music documentaries I've ever seen. I'm now a belated devotee of Rodriguez, the enigma, the voice, the humble, compassionate man. Watch, listen and love.
