Picks and Pans Review: Taping Tip

UPDATED 07/13/1992 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/13/1992 at 01:00 AM EDT


IN WHAT MAY WELL BECOME THE standard marketing timetable in coming years, a film is available this week on pay-per-view before it goes to theaters. It's Time Will Tell (Sat., July 11, check with your local cable company), a biography of the Jamaican reggae star Bob Marley, who died of cancer and a brain tumor in 1981. The film combines animation, performance, interview and candid footage, snapshots and, of course, lots of Mar-ley's stirring music, including "Them Belly Full," "Lively Up Yourself," "Jamming" and "Exodus." The result is an intimate portrait of a thoughtful man and a giant talent, although the narrative device of using only Marley's spoken words becomes rather limiting.
