Moonwalker Review

Image for Moonwalker

A combination of live footage of 'Michael Jackson' in concert, as well as a series of fantasy pieces with Jackson as the central character

★★★★

Love him or loathe him, as both high-funkage stage performer and celebrity car crash, pop monster Michael Jackson is compulsive viewing material. Still, you'll be scratching at your eyes after this terrible milkshake of propaganda and kid's fantasy.

Here, a series of videos are used as stitching for a practically naked narrative that basically amounts to Michael Jackson Running Away While Everybody Tries To Get Him (including, of course, a stop-motion motorcycling rabbit). Moments of unintentional kitsch hilarity abound. It's like having a migraine in Disneyland. Whatís that? It's for kids? Well, so is chickenpox.
