Nicely presented (if shallow) doc about the (too short) life and legacy of Jamaican reggae phenomenon Bob Marley, starting with his dirt-poor childhood and ending with his succumbing to cancer at 36. For those with a cursory knowledge of Marley's past much of this will seem all-too-familiar, and the interviews with family, friends and former band mates ensures that not a negative thing will be said about Bob (only his one daughter has the nerve to chastise her late Dad for his womanizing; another acquaintance just shrugs like it was nothing). There's no denying the legacy and cultural impact of the man, although sadly he's more associated with weed culture (and a poster child for indulging in the herb) than his gifts as a musician or songwriter.
