Like in many documentaries about Bob you hear and see people talking about Bob. But this one is different. No other person then Bob himself is leading this wonderful documentary. There are enough interviews of the great Bob Marley to full many Tapes, so it was great that the makers of Time Will Tell did this in this documentary. But there is more then only Bob speaking. Like many artist people wonder what is left behind on videos and tapes. There is a big collection of unseen videos and tapes if it goes about Bob. I must say that Time Will Tell has many unseen videos and performance. From the Capitol Rehearsals in 1973 to a Jamaican TV performance in 1980 where Bob played Redemption Song. Between this you can also watch some very nice interviews, football footage of Bob in Jamaica and of course live performance. Some performance are really rare like the Get Up Stand Up version played in Germany 1980 or the rare footage of Bob in New York somewhere around his last concert.
If you saw some other documentaries and you want something new then I can recommend you to watch this one. You won't hear unknown people who are telling their story about Bob but only Bob himself talking and performing.
