Well, not really, that's just an urban legend. But even 30 years after his death, Bob Marley remains a cultural, musical, and spiritual icon worldwide. Marley, simultaneously released today in theaters and online aims to be the man's definitive biography.


Directed by Academy Award-winner Kevin MacDonald and produced with the blessings of his family (as you can tell from the interviews), the movie documents Marley's rise from grinding poverty onto the global stage and his untimely demise at just 36. The biography also features the requisite never-before-seen-or-heard tracks and interviews.

If you're lucky enough to live in a city with independent cinemas, gratz—now go find out if it's playing near you. Otherwise, it's available on iTunes and a bunch of On Demand options. [Bob Marley]
