Searching For Sugar Man (Malik Bendjelloul, 2012)

This is a great documentary film.

Music nerds may enjoy this, especially those (like myself) who have done detective work, searching for information on their favorite songs, albums, and artists. 

There is also a political (apartheid) angle to this story, and Rodriguez himself is a fascinating person. I knew nothing about him before watching this, and if you're not familiar with his story, then I would recommend watching the movie blindly. (no trailer or internet-ing)

Either way, it's a good watch, so check it out if you can.

Agreed on all points. Only Good For Conversation is one helluva song.
