The recipient of much acclaim at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival - to the tune of two awards - this documentary traces the literal search for Rodriguez, a musician whose meant-to-be-huge album barely caused a ripple in the 1970s.
Its reputation grew over the following years, though, thanks to a bootleg that got play in South Africa ... and inspired two of the artist's devotees to determine what became of him, despite suicide rumors. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Rodriguez and director Malik Bendjelloul; Q&A session. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
