Sugar Man

"What he’s demonstrated very clearly is that you have a choice. He took all that torment, all that agony, all that confusion and pain and he transformed it in to something beautiful. He’s like the silkworm, you know, you know you take this raw material and you transform it, and you come out with something that wasn’t there before, something beautiful, something perhaps transcendent something perhaps eternal, in so far as he does that I think he is representative of the human spirit of what’s possible that you have a choice, this has been my choice, to give you “Sugar Man”, now have you done that…ask yourself ?" -Rick Emmerson

Hard to believe it's not fiction. Easily one of the most heartwarming documentaries I have ever seen. Now I need to go buy his music.

His friend, Emmerson, should be a writer. Or something.
