With the holes you describe, I am left wondering how you still conclude this is a wonderful documentary. That part did not come through to me. Fond of documentaries and will see those far from wonderful. So curious here.

Good question, Rita. The whole story is magic - these two contrasting realities (his musical failure and hard life in Detroit vs his adoration in S. Africa) brought together. The filmmakers were hoping to find out how he really died and when he turned out to be alive, suddenly it was a different film they had to make. It is an odd, startling tale. You'll want to see it.
