Searching for Sugar Man

 (2012)

Searching for Sugar Man Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Documentary following two South African fans of the 1970s musician Rodriguez, as they unravel the mystery of what happened to the singer. Most famous for the classic song 'Sugar Man', Rodriguez never enjoyed much commercial success in his home country, but became a phenomenon in South Africa, where he was considered on a par with Bob Dylan and The Beatles. Rumoured to have committed suicide onstage in the 1970s, his story has been shrouded in mystery for decades. The film follows the fans as they unearth clues, and follow the trail around the world to discover what happened to this mysterious and talented artist.

Searching for Sugar Man Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Searching for Sugar Man arrives on Blu-ray with a stable high definition transfer. The documentary style isn't designed to dazzle home video audiences; this is a rather straightforward sort of image that offer crisp, well-defined HD video-sourced material for the new interviews and also contains some antique footage from decades past. The new interview clips offer satisfying, clear, and accurate pictures. Colors are even and balanced, details sharp, and the presentation only a bit noisy. There's a good bit of "retro" 1960s footage (or footage made to look retro, as the case may be; the commentary track contains an interesting tidbit on Director Malik Bendjelloul's filming of "vintage" Super 8 footage) that takes the look of aged film. There's also wavy standard definition, consumer-level, home video grade tape material from some older Rodriguez concerts dating from just after the time of his rediscovery. The material looks fine given the source; such is not factored into the overall video score. On the whole, this is a professional, even presentation that doesn't dazzle but isn't designed to dazzle, either. The transfer suits the source just fine.


Searching for Sugar Man Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Searching for Sugar Man finds a home on Blu-ray with a very high quality DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Sony's presentation is largely above reproach, reproducing music beautifully. Songs really dance through speakers, playing with pinpoint accuracy and faultless clarity, presenting listeners with crystal-clear notes that reveal the tiniest musical details, solid body, and a soothing, relaxing presence. The track also features some good atmospherics, notably in a gentle rainstorm that follows the opening titles; the rain splashes through the entire stage and thunder drifts about, the latter rolling and gaining a heavier presence as it grows in potency. Aside from music, dialogue is this track's bread-and-butter element; the spoken word comes through clearly and evenly in every scene. All in all, this is another grade-A soundtrack from Sony.
