THE BOSTON GLOBE: In Bob Marley documentary, catching fire the world over
July 29, 2020
A well-received 2012 documentary on the life of the reggae superstar Bob Marley, “Marley” is being re-released as a virtual screening through the Coolidge Corner Theatre and other venues nationwide to honor the singer’s 75th birthday. If you missed it the first time around, why should you bother now? Because it’s a fat beach-read of a bio-doc that covers every aspect of Marley’s rich life, and because it offers a balanced portrait of the man, despite being produced by family members who have every reason to lean into hagiography.
