“The enormous popularity of the transcendent reggae superstar shows no signs of abating, a situation Marley, a moving and authoritative new documentary, takes as its mission to illustrate and explain.” — Kenneth Turan , Los Angeles Times
“[Marley] emerges as driven, industrious, competitive, a natural leader of charisma who was political in the broadest sense, but never boxed in by politics and who never sold out.” — Peter Bradshaw , Guardian
