Hot Docs is launching and while we have our coverage rolling out in full force, there is one documentary that we here at Xavierpop are very eager to watch, review and simply enjoy.
Marley which (obviously) launched 4/20 has been getting rave reviews. In fact, I am not aware of anyone who doesn’t like it. About one of the greatest legends in music, we are getting unique access through family, archival footage and even unreleased music. Prince is known for having a huge vault of music he has created, I could only imagine how huge the one holding all of Bob Marley‘s music.
About the Film Marley was originally supposed to be directed by Silence of the Lambs filmmaker Jonathan Demme before Life in a Day and Last King of Scotland director Kevin Macdonald came on board. It chronicles the life of Bob Marley and his career as a reggae musician before passing away in 1981.
