  • There is no diverting from strict chronology, no point the documentary wants to make that requires moving forward and back through time. It just inches ahead, one year to another, sometimes one day to another. By the middle, each time a year changes, it's a relief. show more

  • 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. show more

  • The director, Kevin Macdonald, searches for clarity amid the contradictions of Marley's life and reaches no conclusions, but that's a tribute to his subject's complexity in a film of fascinating too-muchness. show more

    If you didn\'t know much about Bob Marley before seeing this documentary, you definitely will after the 2.5 hours of endless examination. It is as if the producer pull his hair out one by one and examine it to the extreme. I feel I could take an SAT exam now on his life and probably make a perfect score.
