Outstanding masterpiece
7 January 2001 | by (Saint-Petersburg, Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Aggressive ignorance of mass-media and of so-called "critics" will never let them appreciate a deeper-than-plain books, music, cinemas and videos.

In the Black Or White minifilm, short-sighted tabloid-like critics were able to see only "masturbation" (which actually was only in their ill minds) and "violence".

But this video has the deepest symbolism I have seen in a film ever.

It called Black Or White. The whole film is about. It is about good Or bad, light Or darkness, happiness of communication between people Or despair of loneliness, peace Or aggression, nations unity Or rage and so on.

Every frame of the last, Panther, sequence is a symbol. The water, the wind, the dance, the mimic poses symbolize many things.

Absolute quality and art of costumes, light, photography, special effects.

The idea, scenario, choreography, text and music by Michael Jackson.
