Personal Quote:

I don't think 'Sugar Man' is a music doc any more than 'The Social Network' is about computers. It just happens to have the best soundtrack ever.

Trivia:

When Bendjelloul first applied to the Swedish Film Academy for funding, a consultant there viewed an early version of Searching for Sugar Man (2012) and told Bendjelloul it was "shit." Bendjelloul raged against the established arbiters of culture and taste. "What kind of films do they fund?" he lamented [Variety 2014]. See more »
