    STAY AWAY from the so-called documentary 'The Trial and Triumph of the King of POP'

    STAY AWAY from a documentary called 'The Trial and Triumph of Michael Jackson. The makers of the DVD, ROCK CITY ENTERTAINMENT and the director Pearl Jr. do nothing but take you down 76 minutes of needless coverage of nothing but just the views of MJ fans outside his courtroom. You would expect an in-depth story, news coverage, anaylsis, unseen footage of the trial. Yes the whole DVD and so called documentary is nothing but views of random fans giving their view. There is NO STORY, NO TRIAL PROCEEDINGS, NO BACKGROUND, NO INFORMATION. The audio is pathetic and so is the script. You have Pearl Jr. doing nothing but chuckling, giggling and laughing in between her words. The actual moving footage of the so called 'documentary' has just 2 mins of Michael jackson moving in and out of court the rest is actually almost pictures of him!!! Yes, they did not even have moving footage so they have picked up pix and put it on a DVD and selling it to the public telling us it contains behind the scenes view of the trial when actually all it has is views of some random MJ fans behind the courtroom gate, THROUGHOUT THE SO CALLED DOCUMENTARY, other than a few quotes from some un-recognisable so-called stars. It gets worse when u realise that you have spent 10 UK pounds (on the DVD) where 15 mins of the 76 mins of the so called documentary consists of an unknown woman trying to sell her book called 'redemption' on MJ. I am sure she would have paid a commission to the makers of this DVD. There is also a time when Pearl takes you to the gates of Neverland (thats the closest the documentary goes) shows one car coming out, waves, chuckles and then shows a few random fans outside the ranch. Thats it!!! for a so called documentary. This is nothing but a home-video made so badly. STAY AWAY from it at all costs ... Its a waste of time and money. Rather spend that money on buying MJ's album in order for him to get revenue to wipe of all his debts.

    This documentary tells the facts that I, myself, researched and I'm so very glad to see a filmmaker have the courage to go against the media pundits that destroyed his public image.

    If anyone wants to know the TRUTH about Michael's sexuality, what he's been doing since his acquittal and his most controversial aspects of life, this DVD tells it all.

    The celebrity well-wishings are cool, but learning about the life of the most famous person and most fabulously talented entertainer in the world was fascinating and riveting!

    BUY it, then watch it with an intellectual curiosity!
