|Man on Wire is also a Fabulous Film...|
|The Anti-Apartheid Anthem|
In the rational world, I suppose, this is a natural question. But it misses the soul of the movie. Rodriguez, despite the difficulty of his exterior circumstances, never stopped playing the guitar. And he never forgot who he was, revealed in the plaid flared 70's era pants and square sunglasses he continues to wear today. South Africa had to wait for Sugar Man, and even Sugar Man had to wait for Sugar Man. "He took all the pain and frustration of his circumstances and made something beautiful out of it," concludes the documentary. That's all we can do, really. And have faith, that if we wait, Sugar Man will come. Thanks to Santosh for passing along the right movie at exactly the right time.
