More of a Promo film
14 January 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

"Being Mick" is not so much of an artistic endeavor as a promotional tool to sell CDs. ABC's Thanksgiving Day 2001 broadcast focuses primarily on the recently released Jagger solo album "Goddess In The Doorway", playing several tracks from that album, and including a live performance of the single "God Gave Me Everything" from the El Rey club in Los Angeles. But it's still interesting.

The best scenes are those that offer a rare glimpse of Mick's home life, and his relationship with his family (Note: Despite what previous reviewers have said, Mick's grandchildren don't appear, and his great-grandchildren don't exist) -- things which have never been documented in one of the most polarized public/private personas in the history of celebrity. Jagger is the rare celebrity that actually leads a life worth documenting; after 40 years in the spotlight, he (along with Keith Richards and Charlie Watts) is one of only a few constants in pop music. Few can argue that this isn't a life unlike any other.
