The best way to find new things to watch.

agoodmovietowatch is the world's first portal of highly-rated but little-known movies and shows. Curated by humans and not algorithms.


This is the story of an almost unknown musician of the 60’s and early 70’s, known as Rodriguez. 

He was shunned in his native U.S., but beloved in the most unlikely of countries, Apartheid-era South Africa. His bootleg albums circulated widely among his fans there, propelling him to extreme levels of fame. But he had no idea. This is a feel-good production that can also be sharp-witted when it needs to be.

A life story that crazy, a writer could never have written it. An absolute must-see. Avoid the spoilers!
