marley the movie
 
did anyone see this? I didn't know so much about him until i sae this very good film, with interviews with family members and people around him.

FASCINATING FACT: He was an outcast because of mix race so music was his salvation and escapism...who would have thought Bob Marley was an outcast in his community!! One love

Zing! The proper Marley was not only inspiring and informative....but one of the best music docs you're likely to see!

I saw the movie a few weeks ago and loved it!! I had no idea he was bi-racial!!! His music is so inspiring!! RIP Bob Marley!!!

I haven't seen it, but now I have to see it. My father is a Rastafarian from Trinidad, and thus, I was exposed to a lot of Reggae and Calypso growing up. I tend to stay away from movies and end up ignorant to some good documentaries as a consequence. I knew he was bi-racial (I'm a mutt of a great, many ethnicities myself), but I'm sure there's some stuff I don't know that are hidden in that doc. Thanks OP for bringing this to our attention (even though it was a while ago but still valid in my opinion). :)

I learned a lot no doubt. Made me realize just how clueless most self-titled Rastafarian are.

I have to ask why do you call yourself something as highly offensive as a mutt?? I realize it is your choice but I much prefer descriptives such as multi cultural or mixed race. It is so much more affirming as opposed to being derogatory.


as far as the movie -- I havent seen it yet. I own several documentaries based on Bob Marley himself as well as Bob Marley and the Wailers so I am very familiar with his personal history. -- having come from the West Indies it would be somewhat of a heresy to not have a deeper knowledge of this man. --I feel the same way about Bob Marley as I do about Martin Luther King Jr. Both were human beings who had shortcomings- don't we all??--but the positive things they have done in their lives far outweigh the negatives. For instance I personally am not an advocate of ganja but I understand some Rastafarians ( Bob Marley being one)believe it was given to man to use both medicinally and for spiritual enlightenment. He was also a man who had several children by several women which I am not a fan of either. But regardless of these things he was a very spirital person and a humanist - he was an advocate of the less fortunate and had a strong influence on Jamaica's opposing political parties. And I have to give him respect for walking the walk and not just talking the talk as they say
