I could simply come here and define "This It It", but I don't have the exact words that could make him justice. So, all I can do is try.
This movie meant lebih to me that any videoclip atau any concert. Finally, I felt really close of his creativity, his cinta for what he have done over than 45 years, the way he put his heart, body and soul to the service of art.
When he did "Human Nature", I think my jantung has melted. His devotion for the song was unbelievable. He felt each musical note, each word, each moment, each sound.
" I Just Can't Stop Loving You" was an interpretation full of passion. Backing vocal Judith bukit, hill executed perfectly the job of being Siedah Garrett, Michael was trying to get lebih intimacy with her, incorporating the man of whom the song speak...
And then, "Billie Jean". All the dancers, the sound and light engineers, the producers, everyone applauded. This time, I wish to highlight the dance. The improvise brought lebih magic to the original coreography (I hate using the word coreography on Michael's jobs!), and I got the idea that he was being "electrocuted" oleh the music... I really don't have the right words to describe this performance. Maybe fantastic, legendary, delightful.
The idea of "Earth Song" really appealed to my humanitarian side. What he berkata about our planet, about what we should do to keep the earth alive, and then the message of the bunga and the burned forest. It really brought tears to my eyes. How sad!
"The Way anda Make Me Feel", "Smooth Criminal" and "Thriller" were really a surprise! But, when anda talk about Michael, anda can expect anything but the usual!
The new versions are awesome, I cinta them all. Like anda can see, Michael's mind is always inovating.
The people, his friends, his family, all of them can say how weak Michael was before he died, that he didn't wanted to do the concerts, that he didn't have strength even to eat, that he couldn't walk atau get out of bed.
I've seen This It It, and what my eyes saw wasn't weakness, sadness atau contrariety. I didn't saw Michael stop for only one minute.
I saw the beautiful smile in his face, the sparkle in his eyes, the power of the rhythm and the excitement traversing his body.
My will is stay here and write about each moment and each song, but I can't, and attending to the fact that I don't wanna annoy anyone, I'm finished.
This Is It, intemporal piece of art, shows the intelligence and the huge talent of a giant soul called Michael Jackson.
"It is the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen. It cements forever Michael's genius in every aspect of creativity. To say the man is a genius is an understatement. He cradles each note, coaxes the musik to depths beyond reality. I wept from pure joy at his God diberikan gift. There will never, ever be the likes of him again."
"I truly believe this film should be nominated in every category conceivable."
"More important, however, is that we rarely witness Jackson giving 100%: He frequently komentar that he is saving his voice and body for the actual performances. Jackson certainly can’t be faulted for this, but it's questionable whether he would really want his fan to see him thus. Don’t get me wrong: 60% of Michael Jackson is still a pretty good thing [...] [Jackson] the noted perfectionist, at work, correcting others’ dance moves without missing a beat himself and giving notes, sometimes revelatory and other times inscrutable, to his musik director and others"
