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.

Boston Globe
It's an outstanding, warts-and-all look at reggae legend Bob Marley. Full Review
Andrew Pulver
The Guardian
What results is an immensely detailed overview of Marley's life and times, from the hillside Jamaican shack where he grew up to the snowy Bavarian clinic where he spent his last weeks in a fruitless attempt to cure the cancer that killed him in 1981, aged 36. Full Review
Ian Buckwalter
Stylistically unremarkable, playing it safe with structure, the film is still quietly revelatory. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
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. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
The tunes, flooding every frame, remain perfect. Full Review
