Critic Reviews for Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (1)

  • It's just plain bursting with joy - it's a documentary that feels like the music it's about.

    May 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Of course Jackson isn't here to discuss matters for himself, and Lee's documentary is, ultimately, enjoyably nostalgic, but says little more than what we already know.

    March 2, 2016 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • This bouncily entertaining doc may boast only a notch more formal ambition than a very well-assembled "Behind the Music" special, but is no less essential than Lee's first MJ opus, the excellent "Bad 25."

    February 5, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Lee keeps his celebration smart and not soppy. He gets you excited, makes you feel the moment, see what was new in it, why it mattered.

    February 5, 2016 | Full Review…
  • He's made a fan's film, and he's happy to let us know it, shouting out questions from behind the camera and cackling loudly when he particularly likes an answer.

    February 4, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Spike Lee's documentary on this formative period in Michael Jackson's career derives electric, enlivening energy from fantastic clips.

Audience Reviews for Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown to Off the Wall

    A great documentary on one of the best pop albums in history. Spike Lee shows us and reminds me how much of a genius Michael Jackson was. Great to watch.
