Very Good, But Not Great...

I just finished watching this, and while I do enjoy it, there's one thing that bugs me a bit: after "Off the Wall", Michael's music is barely explored. "Thriller" selling over 100 million albums is mentioned, and some photos are shown from "Bad", but nothing after that is spoken about. Everything from "Dangerous" to "Invincible" is virtually ignored, and the editing almost seems like it was deliberately cut out. Following what little is mentioned of "Bad", the last 45 minutes of the documentary focus on the 1993 and 2003 molestation trials. Another thing that bothers me is the lack of participation from most of the Jackson family. Katherine, Rebbie, and Tito did interviews, but there's nothing from Joseph, Jermaine, Jackie, Janet, LaToya, Marlon, or Randy. Stories are told by others about them, but they themselves do not appear in this film. Its sad too, because so much could be clarified if they'd agreed. The actual film is 2 hours and 37 minutes, and the disc has some additional footage, but its mostly extended versions of clips seen in the final cut. If you're a fan of Michael and/or his music, I'd recommend it, but don't go in expecting a huge parade of celebrities on camera.
