Was dragged to see this last weekend I was visiting in NYC. I knew nothing about it and will never forget it. Amazing story!!! I downloaded the album as soon as i got home. I hope to see Rodriguez when he comes to Philly in October.

I saw this at Sundance completely unspoiled and it was one of the most fun moviegoing experiences of my life, capped off by Rodriguez' appearance. It's terrible that all the marketing and press spoil the story. It's the freakin' Sixth Sense of documentaries. If you've read this article, go see the movie anyway, but bring an unspoiled friend to try to at least get some vicarious surprise.

& was completely engrossed in just the 2 minutes that it showed. the producer playing one song & almost breaking up. the lyrics went something like "lost my job two weeks before christmas..." then rodriguez really lost job 2 weeks before xmas. no spoiler, as it was in the clip. promptly downloaded song. I love docs, & this looks/sounds great. thanks capone, yet again, you hit it out of the park! though one TBr did mention yesterday or a couple of days ago, that it would be cool to see some pics of your interview sessions. minor quibble, always dig your work!

You're 100 percent right, and there's almost nothing you can do about it. When the director says they want to bring in people to the film with these interviews, and hopefully those people will bring people and tell them nothing about the movie, I read that as permission to do a little bit of spoiling. But honestly, the film succeeds even knowing that. That being said, I'm going to try and write a spoiler-free review for Friday.

Thanks for this great interview, just wanted to point out that it was his first album 'Cold Fact' that became the big hit and inspred a generation in South Africa. I saw the film last week and loved it, a real positive and uplifting tale, highly recommend it. Also people... the album Cold Fact is a brilliant piece of work that grows and grows with every listen, especially the track Suga Man. Can't believe he wasnt a star in the 60s

Please, change the title of your article. You're spoiling the film in the title.
