Outstanding masterpiece
7 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

Aggressive ignorance of mass-media and of so-called "critics" will never let them appreciate a deeper-than-plain books, music, cinemas and videos.

In the HIStory minifilm, short-sighted tabloid-like critics were able to see only "fascism" (which actually was only in their ill minds) and "self-puffing".

But this video is one of the most symbolic I have ever seen.

It called HIStory. The whole film is about. It is about appeal and prediction of the global win of mankind through the music and joy. "We have erected this monument as the sign of power of music, love and unity of all nations around the world", say the headers, which people carry behind marching Michael Jackson.

Well, critics are not aware of Esperanto, the international language, specially created for easy communication between people of different countries and nations. So they were unable to comprehend the sense of headers inscriptions and completely misunderstood the whole idea of the film.

Absolute quality and art of costumes, light, photography, special effects.

The idea and scenario by Michael Jackson.
