Brilliant
22 September 2018 | by TC-BatsySee all my reviews

I'm not a fan of Michael Jackson but this brilliant movie sheds light on a man's journey from a devout fan of the King of Pop to a zealot, who refuses shake a woman's hand through a series of flashbacks from childhood through adulthood. Sheikh Jackson deserved to be nominated for an Academy Award for best foreign film.
