A Must See
4 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gave this documentary 10 starts not because of its excellency in film-making, but because it really reveals how and in what ways media has for many years distorted the image of the greatest entertainer of out time, Michael Jackson. Those who have seen Bashir's Living with Michael Jackson, regardless whether you believed it to be a true or false portrayal of Jackson, needs to see this documentary which shows how answers and comments were either distorted, taken out of context or simply cut (needless to mention that these were the comments that showed Jackson in a positive light). The documentary allows one to juxtapose two angles of the same interviews and the making of the final product (the film) and to really judge for oneself what to believe in. Personally I think it is profoundly sad to see how an absolutely, spectacularly great artist has suffered in the hands of the media-craze and money hungry people.
