Documentary Searching for Sugar Man

I watched this last night and it is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.  The story of Rodriguez a folk singer in the early 1970s who made two records that didn't sell at all in the States and then he just dissappeared.  Somehow one of the records of the few that did sell ended up in South Africa, where pirated cassettes of the original vinyl circulated and his albums become two of the biggest and culturally important albums of the time.  This film tries to track down and tell the story of a man that almost no one knew the story of, while soundtracked by his music that everyone should know.  Below is the trailer.


Here is the full film.
