It's sad
25 April 2003 | by (Medford, MA.) – See all my reviews

Watching this documentary on the life of an entertainer I liked as a kid It's sad to see what Michael has done to himself. His bizzare behavior coupled with the way he denys how much plastic surgery he had, Makes it clear the man needs help from a phsyciatrist. It was sickening the way he treated his youngest son by dangling him over a window balcony in Germany, along with other admissions that here horrific. Some people have criticized Martin Bashir because he was try to make Jackson look bad. He didn't have to, Jackson did it himself. When Bashir asks him how many surgeries he had, Michael says no more than two which is a flat out lie. You can't tell me by looking at him twenty years ago to today that he's only had two! Also his extravagent spending in Las Vegas makes me wonder where he gets his money? (I'm not sure owning the rights to the Beatles songbook covers everything.) Michael Jackson is sadly not even a shadow of his former self. From the time he was the young lead singer of the Jackson Five, to the early 80's when he was at his most popular, to finally what he is today.
