One Love!

Now this is what I call a great quality documentary. Even if you're not a fan of Bob Marley you still can enjoy this biography. Just because it is well made with plenty of archived footage. And all of the cast are the actual people that had a place in his life, in his band or in his daily life. The documentary is of course full of great songs, from the beginning of his career till the end. And honestly I don't know many people that just don't like Bob Marley. He's one of those artists that you can't hate. Full of positive vibrations. It's a pleasure to watch this documentary , to see where he came from, from the ghetto, to see how far he progressed until his tragic end, beaten by cancer at a much too young of age. He will always be remembered as the Rastafarian that only wanted peace and unity for everyone. One Love!

I had seen the poster for this documentary film a number of times, it was obvious what the subject of it was, as a big fan of the artist focused myself I was definitely looking forward to watching, directed by Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void, The Last King of Scotland, Life in a Day). Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was born 6 February 1945, this film depicts the life of the Jamaican singer- songwriter, musician and guitarist, charting his stratospheric rise to fame. The film is made up of archive footage from Marley's various radio and television appearances, including his rare footage and interviews, and of course there are interviews by those who knew him best, friends, family and colleagues. Marley was passionate about music from a young age, but he started with disappointing sales as a solo artist, but then he decided to collaborate with a band called The Wailers, to become Bob Marley and the Wailers, and they achieved international fame. Marley brought to the world attention to Jamaican culture, Reggae music and the Rastafari movement, and the film focuses on his influential music, and his struggle with racial identity and acceptance, and there is mention of his use of cannabis and marijuana. As a member of the Rastafari movement, Marley was dedicated to his religion, believing that God and his family are more important than the success or money he made, in total he had eleven children with seven women, his most famous relationship being with Jamaican Miss World 1976 winner Cindy Breakspeare. Marley's death is also depicted, a cancerous sore had formed on his right toe, it was operated in the past, but the disease had spread to his lungs and brain, and was inoperable, he lost his treasured dreadlocks during chemotherapy, and his pain increased over time, until his tragic death on 11 May 1981, he was aged 36. His greatest and most recognised hits featured or mentioned include "Exodus", "Rough Rider", "High Tide or Low Tide", "Soul Rebel", "One Love / People Get Ready", "It's Alright", "Stir It Up", "No Woman No Cry", "Get Up Stand Up", "Concrete Jungle", "Jamming", "I Shot the Sheriff", "Three Little Birds", "Is This Love" and "Could You Be Loved". Others that could or should have been mentioned are "Buffalo Soldier" and "Sun Is Shining" (vs. Funkstar De Luxe). With contributions from Rita Marley (Bob's widow), Neville "Bunny Wailer" Livingston, David "Ziggy" Marley (Bob's son), Cedella Marley (Bob's mother), singer Jimmy Cliff, Cindy Breakspeare, Lee "Scratch" Perry (music producer), Constance Marley (Bob's half- sister), Chris Blackwell, Judy Mowatt (backing vocalist), Neville Garrick, Marcia Griffiths, Aston "Family Man" Barrett, Peter Marley (Bob's second cousin),Junior Marvin, Diane Jobson, Allan "Skill" Cole, Bob Andy, Donald Kinsey, Alvin "Seeco" Patterson, Dr. Carlton "Pee-Wee" Fraser, Evelyn "Dotty" Higgin, Pascaline Bongo Ondimba, Ibis Pitts, Dr. Conroy Cooper, former President of Jamaica Edward Seaga, Lloyd "Bread" McDonald, Hugh Creek "Sledgo" Peart, Carlton "Santa" Davis, Imogene "Aunt Amy" Wallace, Dudley Sibley, Desmond "Desi" Smith and many more. Marley was a reggae superstar, and his music continues to inspire and influence artists, it is interesting to watch, and obviously hearing the popular songs keeps it going, you could argue it is perhaps a little too long, at just over 2 hours 20 minutes, and it is a bit up and and down at times, but overall it's not a bad biographical music documentary. It was nominated the BAFTA for Best Documentary Film. Worth watching!

Great documentary on a great man

Great documentary on a great man: the musical and lyrical genius Bob Marley. Thorough - some interviews and performances are pretty rare. Well-told - the interviews and sub-titles move the story forward, not narration.

Director Kevin MacDonald (The Last King of Scotland, One Day in September, Touching the Void, State of Play) weaves an interesting and compelling story. Marley's philosophies and drivers are there for all to see.

Quite long, but everything is relevant. No padding, no unnecessary and/or empty interviews.
