Michael Jackson

The Trial and Triumph of the King Of Pop DVD

Review by Gary Hill

Hmmm…this DVD is not really what I was expecting. That said, it’s still entertaining. My thoughts were that this was going to be a documentary focusing on the facts of Michael Jackson’s trial. That’s not what this is. It’s sort of a casual look at a lot of the frenzy around the trial. I learned some things I didn’t know about. For instance, when the trial was going on there were fifty public seats in the courtroom. So, each morning a lottery was held and numbers drawn. If your number was drawn you got to attend the trial that day. People would stand around outside waiting for their number to come up.

This is a bit strange and will probably be disappointing to those who come to it thinking it’s a real documentary. That said, this is fun and quirky and entertaining. I’d recommend it to all fans of Michael Jackson. It’s certain that it’s the last time Michael Jackson will be on trial for anything.
