a fair treatment

For all Michael Jackson fans there are some emotionally moving tributes to this great artist; however, this documentary is without the power (i.e. with the sound) from any of his exciting video clips. 10-20 seconds from various videos would be great. I watched this with my young kids (7 and 9) who love Michael Jackson. Like many, my son has taught himself the moonwalk and although the movie mentions it, there are no actually examples of Michael doing the moonwalk (which I have seen on other videos). With everything from this public career, there could have been more. (Oh, there was a nice clip from Sheryl Crow when she was younger, working as a backup singer for Michael Jackson.)

Okay, with this said there were some fair presentations, in particular concerning the plastic surgery on his face. Here we learn that he was burned from a stage fire and required the surgery (at least initially ). This was informative. Although it dealt briefly with the child abuse issue/s, it failed to tie in any form of abuse from his father. The conclusion from the LA public mourning was a nice ending ... so 7 out of 10.
