In the wake of Michael Jackon's death, the world went into mourning. He was the youngest member of the Jackson 5, and as a child, his soaring voice would ensure that Michael would be the Jackson brother to watch. Born into a working class family in Gary, Indiana, he created music that impacted the world in ways that perhaps even he could never have imagined. But it was not just his unique voice that entranced the public - it was his incredible dance moves - particularly the "Moon Walk" - which had audiences gasping in disbelief at first; then trying to copy, in the privacy of their lounge rooms! On June 25th 2009, the death of a legend shocked and saddened the world, and his ability to touch people through music was brought to the fore, as fans and detractors alike mourned his passing while listening to timeless hits such as Thriller, Billie Jean, Beat it and Smooth Criminal. A few days after the devastating news of his death, sales of his albums skyrocketed, fans showing the world where they thought Michael Jackson should be - back on top of the album charts, dead or alive. Through the cinema and DVD release of "This Is It", the documentary of the rehearsals for his upcoming, "come-back" concerts planned for London, Michael has transcended death to reach out to his fans, giving them a rare glimpse of what he was like as a performer, artist and dancer behind the scenes. The movie had the tagline - "Discover the man you never knew" - and the documentary allows us to do just that. But what the film really does is capture the last days in the life of a man loved by millions, despite - or perhaps because of - his eccentricities.
