Kieran's Review of Searching for Sugar Man
Searching for Sugar Man(2012)
Fascinating film that certainly holds plenty of surprises for the uninitiated. As well as an intriguing detective story it also offers a glimpse into the political state of South Africa and Detroit's music scene in the 70s. Unfortunately one of the main questions is left answered. If Rodriguez's albums have indeed had millions of legitimate sales in South Africa then what did happen to the money? Also we are consistently told that Rodriguez was essentially homeless even by his own daughter only for this to be countered by a statement in the closing caption.
