BOB MARLEY: MAKING OF A LEGEND was a disappointing stretch. Had the videographer, Esther Anderson, Bob Marley’s girlfriend left the raw footage, home video segments alone, fans would have been more than satisfied. They would have only seen, understood, and marveled at the commonality of this reggae great, a new genre innovator. Instead, the film was compromised, unnecessarily lavished with Ethiopian and Jamaican history using news clips, tacked on long drawn interviews with people who intermittently met up with the man—Mother Macky, widow of drummer Bongo Macky, Jamaican neighbors, and beach boys he once jammed with. These add ons only confused, having the viewer constantly asking, “What is the relevancy?” The black n’ whites were sufficient and Anderson’s attempt to create a lengthier film served only to distract what could have been a memorable reality expose of the legend, Bob Marley. Leave well enough alone.
