Hotel Mumbai. WOW

Saw it last night. It is so well done and intense. It’s very educational too. The director did not shy away from the most extreme violence and horrifying details of 2008 event, be warned. Tonining it down would be a disservice to victims and survivors.

Leaving Neverland

I’m surprised it’s not being discussed here. As a huge Jackson fan since childhood, it was heartbreaking to watch. I remember how happy I was in 2015 that he was acquitted so I beleived in the judicial system. However, I do beleive the two men in this new documentary without reservation. I think it is very important film, not even so much about Jackson but how ‘child grooming’ works. A must see for any parent. The parents of those two boys (now men) are definately at fault also. How can someone leave 8 year old boy with a grown man to sleep in the same bed?? They allowrd it cause they were showered with money from Jackson including paying off their mortgage.

Anyway, knowing all this and beleiving all this, I’m somehow able to separate him as a musician. I never thought of Jackson as an actual person anyway, he was 100% entertainer to me. Also, even if you don’t want to hear his music anymore, you can’t apply this standard to his songs from childhood era as he was just a child then not a predator.
