+1More of a documentary on quite an interesting musician!
It is called "Searching for Sugarman".
It is actually made by a group of South Africans my age, 40'ish, who grew up with his music and legend.
In the Apartheid era of SA, anything anti establishment was banned, so a lot of music was censored and never heard.
Vinyl were screened and any non-conforming track was scratched and destroyed so it could not be played.
Somehow a copy of the vinyl made it through SA customs and his music came at the right time!
Time for change!
He was never seen in concert and rumor was that he had killed himself.
The two guys go on a journey to find this remarkable man to find out if he is still alive what he is doing now.
Fascinating documentary scenes from SA history with Rodriguez actually playing a few concerts in SA!
And one of his songs that I really like
Love, love, love Taika Waititi Named our newest cat Taika Whykitty.I watched the "Day the Earth Stood Still". It was really good I like older flying saucer movies.
I just watched something called "What We Do In The Shadows". It was a New Zealand made move and made in 2014 so not that old. It was a vampire movie about 4 male bachelor vampire friends living together in modern day society. They had a friend teach them about computers, had parties and went out to bars. They werent too mean and it was made like a documentary explaining how they became vampires. The perks of being the undead. It was a comedy. I thought it was pretty good.
