Some documentaries are informative, some are compelling, some are entertaining, some are inspiring. Very few are all of the above, and this is one of them. Bob Marley was a man with a spiritual mission as well as a brilliant musician, and this biography tells his whole story -- tells it in a way that engages your attention for well over 2 hours, leaving you in a state of awe at the end. Along the way, it delves into the roots of reggae and Rastafarian culture, Jamaican politics, the music business of the 70s and 80s, and the causes of Marley's early death, which came just as his determination to take his spiritual message to the world achieved success. It doesn't gloss over his faults or the differences he had with close associates such as Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Lee Perry and Chris Blackwell, or the complexities of his family life, which we hear about directly from his wife Rita, his children, and some of the other women who gave birth to his children. And of course there's plenty of great music in the soundtrack, both in the feature and the extras. I've seen some excellent documentaries on great musicians, but i'd have to put this one at the top of the list. Magnificent.
