In this special re-release of MARLEY, Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin MacDonald combines unheard tracks, unseen footage, and intimate interviews to paint a definitive portrait of the legendary artist.

REVIEW

Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

“Marley was directed by the gifted Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland), who shows off his chops not by doing anything dazzling – the film is documentary prose, not poetry – but by treating Marley as a man of depth and nuance, of inner light and shadow.”
