Michael Jackson still blowing minds in Spike Lee documentary
Spike Lee has been quite busy lately, his movie Red Hook Summer and his Broadway play starring Mike Tyson both open at the end of the month, plus, the Knicks have been dropping bad news on a daily basis for weeks now. However, that hasn't stopped the legendary director from finding time to work on a documentary celebrating the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson's Bad. Lee had yet to release any clips from the film until now-- and as you can see below, it was well worth the wait.
This particular scene features the director and choreographer from the video "The way you make feel," and while it may only be a minute of footage, it is instantly goosebump-worthy. Upon viewing it, one might feel as though they are seeing the King of Pop for the first time all over again-- minus the braces and bad perm, of course.
Considering that the Brooklyn-based director was allowed full access to all things Jackson, including unreleased songs, a long list of interviewees, and a video that Jackson shot himself, the rest of the film should have no trouble living up to the hype. A release date for the movie has yet to be announced, but one might assume that it will coincide with Jackson's birthday (August 29th), which Lee celebrates every year with a party in Prospect Park, and the original debut of Bad on August 31st.
