Fascinating... — 4 years ago
Whatever you think of Michael Jackson, you can’t deny his impact on pop culture and music… for FOURDECADES. Wow. This movie answers a few questions I had about his musicianship, which is astonishing. I was agog watching MJ working with his band, and fairly impressed by his physical willingness to entertain. Fifty years old… hard to believe.
The film ignores tabloid topics, which is probably appropriate. It is an homage to influence of a man who became a phenomenon. I couldn’t help mourning for the show itself – the people involved in it, pouring so much effort and money into an endeavor that never came to fruition. You feel their enthusiasm as a real force, their worship of this man who was a true icon, for better or worse. Like I said, if nothing else this film is fascinating for the curious.
And yeah, I couldn’t hold back. I did a little Thriller dance in a my seat. I wasn’t alone. :)
