#8 ‘Marley’“Marley” is a 2012 documentary-biographical film directed by Kevin MacDonald documenting the life of Bob Marley.

The content spans over the life and musical career of Marley, mainly as seen through the eyes of those who knew him and contributed to the documentary, including Bunny Wailer, Rita Marley, Lee “Scratch” Perry and many others.

Although Marley was enthusiastic about music from a young age, he had disappointing record sales as a solo artist. He then decided to collaborate with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer to create “The Wailers.” This group later became known as “Bob Marley and the Wailers” and achieved international fame. The group made Bob Marley a household name and brought worldwide attention to Jamaican culture, Reggae music and the Rastafari movement.
