Premier latinoamericana

Spike Lee gathers a great amount of archive footage to create this detailed chronicle of an unexplored chapter in the king of pop’s music career: the release of his fifth album in 1979 and his relationship with Quincy Jones. 

Every artist is at least two people –the person who makes the art and the person who does everything else. It’s impossible not to confuse them, and we like to read the life in the art; but sometimes the art is made in spite of the life, or made without regard to it. Michael Jackson may have been a mixed-up kid who became a mixed-up adult, but he was also an artist who knew his stuff. Lee has made a documentary about that Michael Jackson, the artist, a person driven not only to make music but also to conquer the world. The film might be the foundation for an alternative history, a life in which things could have turned out differently. There are no flash forwards to that other, future person, all but unrecognizable except in his singing and dancing. Those years, those complications and triumphs are not for this piece. It just wants to rock with you. RL
