TEDDY PENDERGRAS­S: IF YOU DON’T KNOW ME

DRUM - - CHILL OUT -

DOC­U­MEN­TARY. 102 MIN. 2018. 16L. NOW ON SHOWMAX

Teddy’s life is re­counted in such a rev­er­en­tial man­ner that this of­ten feels closer to a biopic.

It fol­lows the soul singer’s ca­reer from his early days through to his solo ca­reer and the car crash that left him quad­ri­plegic and sui­ci­dal.

It’s an up­lift­ing story but falls short in prop­erly ex­plor­ing the in­flu­ence of crim­i­nals in the mu­sic busi­ness.
