Searching for Sugar Man is ultimately an ode to Rodriguez’s artistic modesty and the power of his music—a rousing crowd-pleaser that asks you to save questions for another film.

Bendjelloul is a natural dramatist with bags of visual flair. And though it’s not clear how tortuous the quest to find Rodriguez really was, we fall in willingly with the quest as the director cuts excitable testimony from fans with romantically murky old footage of Rodriguez with thumbnail sketches of Detroit.

While occasionally the movie teeters close to embracing bromides about the universal healing power of pop culture, there’s too much sincerity in “Searching for Sugar Man,” too much love and enduring human mystery for cynicism to take hold. In the end Mr. Bendjelloul went looking for a man and found something much greater.
