chronicles the making of Michael Jackson’s iconic, record-breaking Bad
album and Michael’s first world tour as a solo artist. With BAD25, Spike
Lee examines Michael Jackson’s creative vision for the album that ended
up defining an era. Michael’s lasting artistic legacy comes to life
thanks to rare and never before seen footage and the vivid recollections
of Michael’s collaborators and confidants, such as Martin Scorsese who
directed the 18-minute short film for the single Bad. TIME Magazine
called BAD25 “an intimate view of a performer at his peak in the intense
splendor of creativity” and the Hollywood Reporter said “restore(s) the
reputation of Jackson as a multi-hyphenate musician of peerless
discipline, professionalism and perfectionism — not to mention a
pioneering influence in dance and fashion.”
joins an incredible body of Spike Lee documentaries including the
Peabody and Emmy Award-winning, WHEN THE LEVEES BROKE: A REQUIEM IN FOUR
ACTS and its follow up, IF GOD IS WILLING AND DA CREEK DON’T RISE, KOBE
DOIN’ WORK and the Academy Award-nominated, 4 LITTLE GIRLS. Lee
directed both short films for Michael Jackson’s They Don’t Care About Us
from the 1996 HIStory album.

Michael Jackson). The deluxe package contains remastered versions of the
