searching for sugarman – sweet news

Proof that I have great taste in films?  Only ONE of my Oscar picks won.  But then again, when you make your picks, you have to take off your art appreciation cap and “think Oscar” and, as the woman in the viral news clip says “ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat.”

Truth be told, I didn’t watch the Oscars but a smile came to my face when Twitter went berserk with the news that Searching for Sugarman had won for Best Documentary. Suddenly, for about ten minutes, Oscar was legit again and I fondly recalled watching Malik Bendjelloul’s beautiful bittersweet true story about musician/songwriter/artist Sixto Rodriguez.  I remember leaving the theater SO HAPPY SO LUCKY to have been told this story.

I hope you’ll see the film.  You’ll be richer for it.
