Before his untimely demise the self titled King of Pop, Michael Jackson, was preparing for his final concert tour of 50 cities. Leading up to the tour a camera crew followed Jackson, his artistic director, choreographers, dancers, and musicians to gather file footage of the process. With just days before final dress rehearsals and the tour kickoff in London, Jackson died at the age of 50. From the 100 plus hours of footage that was captured, This Is It breaks down to just about two hours of rare insight to Jackson’s creative process, his genius, and in some cases his idiosyncratic behaviors.  this-is-it-poster While the film isn’t ground breaking or fresh in it’s documentary style at all, in fact it’s quite rudimentary, the big take away still remains just how amazing Jackson’s entertainer mind was. Witnessing his attention to detail in every aspect of the production makes for ample inspiration for up and coming as well as current performers. And, from a technical standpoint the audience is given a behind the scenes peek that shows just how revolutionary and limitless Jackson’s imagination was. Regardless of his past transgressions, if you have ever been a fan of Jackson’s music, this film will not disappoint. This Is It is rated PG.
