The definitive life story of Bob Marley - musician, revolutionary, legend -- from the early days to international superstardom. Made with the support of his family, featuring rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews.
Marley is highly watchable, finely crafted legacy preservation - and it's either a white-washed sham or awesomely shaded.
It wants to show us the man behind the famous dreads, beatific smile and durable songs of love, hope and longing. In this task it succeeds admirably.
Sprinkled with riffs, concert footage and home videos, the family-authorized documentary does what the artist usually did: When in doubt, return to the beat.
Macdonald supplies some interesting and novel details about the musician's life and art, though the movie's narrative arc and documentary methods are totally predictable.
Given the legal and logistical constraints on this long-delayed project, this lengthy movie is as comprehensive a history as Marley's fans could have hoped, but the uninitiated may not catch a fire.
Bob Marley wrote the same song about 8,000 times, and the documentary "Marley" makes sure to include each version.

Excellent Documentary This was a very informative and entertaining documentary. It's always good to see the story behind the genius. Bob Marley wanted to make a difference in this world and he fought for "World Peace." No one is "one dimensional." Bob Marley was complex and touched millions of people with his music. I heard on the radio that he smoked a pound a day of "weed." However, if you listen to the documentary that was a false accusation by the press. Bob Marley did not do that and as we all can see that he died from that foot injury by playing soccer which he failed to get treatment for later on. It was diagnosed by the Doctors as melanoma. Bob Marley continued to tour without treatment and it developed into full blown cancer. Bob Marley died at 36 years of age. However, Bob Marley accomplished more in life than the average 80 year old. Rest in Peace, Bob Marley... Job Well Done!
'nuff respect! Growing up during that period in Jamaica and thinking you knew what was going on...this filled many gaps for me and will for true fans of the music and the man (it's bigger than just weed)!
A new look on the religion I loved the movie!!! I hardly knew anything about Bob Marley! But, I found the Rastafarian religion is a misinterpreted form of Christianity! I am a Christian, and I find it somewhat.....troubling to find that, we read the same book, but, Rastafarian's are kinda going against it:/ But the movie was a very good movie! Robert Nesta Marley was a very good man! R.I.P Bob
AAAH-MAAAY-ZIIING Any reggae fan needs to watch this. Afterall how can one call themselves a fan and NOT learn or admire everything about its Godfather and most recognizable represented face. He truly was a genious and innovator and arguably had one of the purest messages out. To cure Hate, which he saw as a disease all one had to do was inject the cure, L-O-V-E which was found in his music. Truly one rare human being.
The Best bob marley documentary This movie was great cause its comming from people who knew him..and it finally put some of the rumors 2 rest ...like heas just a f**kin stoner...WRONG..HE WAS A F****N Musical Genius.AND REAL..AND NOT FAKE....ALWAYS SPREDDING THAT Possitive VIBE..WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE THAT.. Especially right now..IN A Negative WORLD.. WE LIVE IN
Love of heart If everyone head the love of Mother Earth and the peace at heart just maybe we all should take a stand against all of this un necessary killing of our young leaders. So lets some h how some way stop the madness.
An inspiration This doc was a surprise. What an amazing man and such a loss. To bad more people don't want peace in the world. So generous and kind. Those of use who were lucky enough to be touched by his life were blessed One love
Perfect. One of the best, most inspiring documentaries of our time. Bob Marley is dearly missed and his influence is much needed in this day and age. Not since him has there been a more pure soul in music and world culture <3 all the good ones get taken too soon :(
Speechless Bob showed love and happiness all around the world, and spread the message through his lyrics! Even though his gone for so long, he still lives in my heart and is like his still alive through his music, a prophet of HIS Majesty Jah Rastafari! One Love
Bob Marley If that name doesn't tell it all. Time to educate yourself. This man is an eternal Soul that will shine down & touch you & others to make this world a better place. ONE LOVE! He wasn't just a smoker. His true LEGEND is one of peace and faith in fellow woman & man. He had so much love for the sensual female it's something boys should be raised to follow. Sounds like a description if Jackie Robinson, MLK, Gandhi...
The Rastafari culture was known worldwide Because of this one man, he truly lived without a hate bone in his heart, he set out to cleanse this world of hate and came so close, inspiring people even after his death and showing the world the true meaning of love, RIP Mr. Bob Marley, you shown us all the true way of life.
GREAT DOCUMENTARY I have always loved Bod Marley 's songs... They always inspire me and make me happy... and now after watching this great film, I have so much more understanding and respect for this musical genius. The Godfather of Reggae music. This is a must watch film, if you love reggae music! :)
Marley is... ...GREAT. I already loved the music but after watching this I was enlightened to why "when music hits you, you feel no pain". This man truly had a beautiful outlook on life and soul. RIP Jamaican Soldjaaa.
Serves its purpose well. It is SO REFRESHING to see Bob portrayed as he really was. When I speak to people I feel like no one knows he was more than a pot head or a face on a T-shirt. Testimony from Rita and Cedella really make this worth watching for me.
Excellent Very inspiring, very insightful I learned things about him I had never known. My dad always played his music on the record player when I was young, so it was nice to kinda relive that and see who Bob Marley really was.
Heaven sent He is not only beautiful outside but has abundance of inner beauty and strength.. His life was so inspirational and full of Love... He is something we need today... I love this magnificent rasta....
Must see If th ads a fan of Bob Marley then you need to see this documentary. It is very touching and just amazing all around. If you don't know him or don't know his awesome music....please get educated :-)
Wonderful Insight Truly a wonderful insight into the intimate life of the greatest influential person to come out of Jamaica. What a well thought out and well produced documentary. I would give it ten stars if that was possible. One Love
No Imitation... ...the man, the wife, the kids, the band, the legend, the music, the song writer, the friend of the world, the man of his community, the provider, the composer, the father, it's all one man, it is ROBERT NESTER MARLEY, b.k.a BOB MARLEY.
One Love Robert Nesta Marley is arguably one of the most influential artists ever...politically...culturally...spiritually...and this documentary gives exclusive looks behind the scenes at his legendary life...thumbs up!
He was and is, without doubt, Jamaica's finest export and in this programme we can reveal for the first time on DVD the behind the scenes Bob Marley that only his closest confidantes could know. To help us understand a little more about this iconic Jamaican is his long time girlfriend and Oscar nominated actress Esther Anderson who describes in detail their life together at home in Hope Road as well as in London. Of all the people considered closest to him, Esther was probably the person who knew more about the man's innermost thoughts and fears than any; so much was she in tune with him she even helped to write some of his hit records. Also featured is the last interview he would ever give in the UK where journalist Kris Needs questions him about his foot injury (the injury that would eventually lead to the diagnosis of terminal cancer) and many other topics about which Marley held strong views. The DVD also reveals previously unseen home footage plus live performances including 'Lively Up Yourself' which was last seen performed in the 70's.

A very long, sloppy trailer for the original film - This is NOT the film COLOR ME OBSESSED, A FILM ABOUT THE REPLACEMENTS. That film is 2 hours long and tells the full story of the band through the eyes of their fans, followers, fellow musicians, roadies, sound men, and more. This film, which runs 49 minutes, is a collection of funny Replacements stories, most of which do not appear in the finished film.

Go behind the scenes for a fascinating glimpse into how Walt Disney used the language of music to bring the brothers together, creating a cinematic legacy like no other.
Documentary on legendary Husker Du drummer/singer/songwriter, Grant Hart - The only star and singing voice of this film, Grant Hart, the lucid yet damaged drummer of Husker Du, soberly analyses the great American punk tripartite of the 80s while rummaging around in its soul. Every Everything is a bold and original documentary where it all comes out, told by an articulate, alienated and ill-tempered chronicler, brimming with vulnerability, hatred, and terrible addiction.
After a childhood of playing cantinas and honky tonks from Texas to Tennessee, Los Lonely Boys have rocked their way to the top of the American music industry, determined to fulfill their father's long held dream. LOS LONLEY BOYS: COTTONFIELDS AND CROSSROADS tells the story of three Mexican American brothers from San Angelo Texas who are creating a unique sound that melds the core of the early San Angelo music scene of the 1950s and 60s with a signature style they call 'Texican.' Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Hector Galan, himself a San Angelo native, fuses exciting live performances, vivid imagery of West Texas, and intimate personal stories in this feature documentary. Galan was able to capture a magical moment in time when the stars finally aligned in the boys' favor after so many years of struggle. LOS LONLEY BOYS: COTTONFIELDS AND CROSSROADS is a heartfelt and moving account that brings to life Los Lonely Boys' incredible personal musical journey. The film weaves a historical and cultural perspective on brothers Henry, JoJo and Ringo Garza, highlighting their Mexican American roots and musical influences. The Garza brothers come from a long line of working musicians- music has always been a way of life for them. Like work in the cottonfields, music also brought the family a means of survival. The film traces the early days as the young family band cuts its teeth learning from their father as he takes them to play in country bars and Mexican cantinas in and around San Angelo Texas. We travel with them to Nashville where they endure turmoil and heartbreak. These life experiences captured so eloquently by Galan's camera reveal a compelling portrait of a young band of brothers who against all odds, break out of poverty and find the American rock n roll dream.
