Rated PG-13 144 minutes 2012

This documentary from director Kevin Macdonald does an excellent job of chronicling the life of Bob Marley, from his young-boy days through his untimely death from cancer at the age of 36. The nearly 2 1/2-hour documentary is a must-see for lovers of the man. If you dig films about musical history, but aren’t necessarily a Marley fan, it’s still a good watch. Macdonald gets some great interviews, including Jimmy Cliff; Marley children Ziggy and Cedella; Marley’s wife, Rita; and his mom, Cedella Marley-Booker. It’s surprising to hear Ziggy speak of his dad as a rough, uncompromising guy who wouldn’t give in just a little during foot races on the beach; I pictured Marley as an absolute sweetheart. I went into this film knowing plenty about Marley’s music. After seeing Macdonald’s heartfelt effort, I know a lot more about Bob Marley, the man, and I’m grateful for that.
