Bob Marley is a part of any beach lover's music collection. It immediately evokes happiness and a feeling of unity when one hears the music and sings along. When I think of Bob I picture myself back in Venice Beach, CA where I spent many carefree days enjoying that relaxed chill vibe that Bob Marley emits.
Kevin MacDonald's documentary Marley is a fabulous film that takes you through the amazing but short journey that Bob Marley had on this earth. What I really loved about this movie was that it was not a story about a person of humble beginnings making it big. It was a film about someone from humble beginnings making it big and staying humble. The film runs about 2 and half hours which may seem long but I enjoyed every minute. It includes many interviews with close friends, family, lovers and musicians that share their special memories with Bob. But of course it's the interviews with Marley himself that are the true gems of the film. Despite the fact that Bob Marley only lived 36 years, Kevin MacDonald's film does an excellent job of portraying the tremendous impact that Marley's music, life philosophy and general good spirit has made worldwide.
