Bob Marley’s universal appeal, impact on music history and role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. MARLEY is the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.
As a young kid I would go to the library and rent tapes and copy them, among these tapes was Bob Marley and the Wailers, more precisely “Legend” I’ll never forget that time period in my life listening to that tape, and from that time on Bob Marley and his music left a lasting impression in my heart. (I have some old portraits of Bob I drew back then somewhere) A couple of friends brought me to see this newly released documentary “Marley” and I was so pleasantly surprised on how good it was. Go see this film if you get a chance, its a bit long being just under 2 and a half hours, but it does not drag.
