Anthology movie by, and starring, Michael Jackson in his prime, combining a number of music videos from his bestselling "Bad" album with a fantasy tale of Michael's confrontation with a ruthless drug dealer known as Mr. Big (Joe Pesci).
I can't agree with Sibisi that this documentary gives a neutral audience into understanding the obsession than Michael Jackson fans have for their idol . Did I say neutral ? I doubt if there's such a thing where Michael Jackson is concerned - You either love him or hate him , a fact reflected in the selection of the jury for his upcoming trial . Yeah this documentary is doing its best to be open minded about the fans who follow Jackson's every word but we're left none the wiser why his fans are totally obsessed with him . Emmanuel from Belguim has spent a fortune on plastic surgery looking like MJ . Okay maybe if he wanted to look like Michael from his Thriller days I might be able to understand that , but Emmanuel looks like MJ from the History era ! Perhaps someone should have asked why ? We're shown the stunning Annika who is 20 years old and studying to be a lawyer , from a stable family background but no one asks her family what they think of her Michael Jackson fixation . We're then shown Danny who is a Jacko die-hard and very foul mouthed but we're not talking a ghetto kid we're talking about some very high class English boy who had me in stitches as he condemned the press in the most truculent of terms . Didn't the documentary makers think of asking his parents where Danny learned all these disgusting words ? he is incapable of saying a sentence without peppering the conversation with the " F " word
There is an amount of amusement in watching this documentary same as there's much amusement in watching THE JERRY SPRINGER SHOW . Danny and Annika travel to Santa Barbera ( Again there's no explanation as to where they got the money from ) to see the pre trial hearing of Jackson . Annika is allowed into the public gallery while Danny is left in the front of the crowd . Danny has a great idea ( His words not mine ) and drives to Neverland Ranch to see a glimpse of his hero . Danny drives out to the ranch liberally sprinkling his conversation with profanities only to find that Jackson has already left . More swearing as Danny drives back to find that he's lost his place at the front of the crowd and that Jackson has already entered the courthouse . It's like watching an episode of THE SOPRANOS where Tony and the boys drive around town trying to bump off a snitch only to find the stoolie has died of natural causes
A potentially good documentary let down by the fact that the production team didn't ask enough questions . Hopefully we'll see a follow up programme where Danny , Annika etc are asked their opinions on the outcome of the trial
