Michael Jackson’s THIS IS IT
8 November 2009
Have you seen the new Michael Jackson film yet? At The Millions, I write about my experience watching it last week – which is a little different from a “review.” But those of you who’ve read my essays at The Millions know that I only write reviews “sort of” if I write them at all.
A great comment on the essay from a reader:
At my six-year-old’s incessant and ardent insistence, I viewed This Is It last night–with no expectations. Your description of the viewing experience is exactly like my own. I walked out of the theater feeling that my days, while not by any means empty, could certainly be fuller and more filled with love. This Is It is the anti-cynicism. It makes you bust moves in the theater parking lot and drive home hungry for life.
