Could the King of Pop actually be alive? Investigative journalist Pearl Jr explores the possibility that Michael Jackson faked his death.

Pearl Jr. lays out the amazing facts and several strange coincidences that could lead many people to believe Michael Jackson may not have died. Plus bonus features including a possible Michael Jackson sighting!

The $15 spent to produce this piece of crap would have been better spent on a grammar book. (Yes, she uses the phrase "a whole nother," the non-word "supposably" instead of "supposedly," and refers to Marlon Brando as "Marlon Brandon." I'm pretty sure that by doing those things, she loses at least some of her credibility.)

This woman takes the most miniscule facts and stretches them to appear as "evidence" that Jackson faked his death. For example: she uses Joe Jackson's self-promoting in the days after his son's death as evidence that Joe knew Michael was still alive. Here's some news for you: the reason Joe Jackson made those remarks to promote himself is because HE IS AN A-HOLE!

This woman cites newspapers "The Weekly World News" and "The National Examiner" as credible sources. Has she ever looked at these "news" papers? Perhaps her next cheap investigation can be about how Bat-boy has escaped again, or which presidential nominee the aliens will back in the next election.

Buy his music and enjoy it. But skip this piece of garbage (unless you want a good laugh).

This video (I refuse to call it a documentary) is shocking, disturbing, and downright scary. Not for the reasons you would think, rather because of presenter. I watched this on Netflix, and you should watch it as well. Unlike other reviewers I will not try to persuade you to spend your time elsewhere. If you are at all concerned/interested in mental health issues and want to see a case that will leave you haunted, this is the video for you. This woman actually believes what she says, and that's the most shocking part. Pick a conspiracy theory; from the Moon Landing Hoaxers to the Birther Movement to the 9/11 Conspiracy people...none of them have anything on this woman.

An hour of painful, wide eyed expressions of smirks and "I know something you don't" smiles punctuated with a grasping, almost panicked inquiry of "Now do you believe?" will have you on the verge of tears for the illness this woman apparently has. I say apparently because I don't think she's acting, but that is within the realms of possibilities. The music group SOUNDGARDEN once made a video for their single "Black Hole Sun", in which a cast of characters often displayed wide, exaggerated plastic-like smiles. The expressions on this video remind me starkly of that video Starting out stronger than it ends, you get the feel like she may have a case, but that quickly evaporates as one flimsy piece of "evidence" after another are presented in succession. As you reach for the controller to stop watching, you find yourself not able to escape the train wreck that unfolds in front of you.

I watched this on Netflix out of curiosity. Holy cow this woman is off her rocker. She has zero evidence. Just gossip. Watch it for a good laugh, but do not invest your money in this garbage. RIP MJ!

My morbid curiosity won out again and compelled me to watch this "documentary," especially when I saw all of the negative reviews. Except for a couple of mildly interesting but inconsequential points, the presenter (Pearl Jr.) offers nothing but baseless innuendoes, tabloid gossip, and huge leaps of logic to make her case that Michael Jackson is still alive. Here's an example: MJ said he would end up like Elvis, so that obviously means he faked his death. That's actually one of Pearl Jr.'s better arguments. The woman actually cites the Weekly World News as one of her sources - that tells you everything you need to know about her journalistic credentials and integrity. I could see somebody uploading something like this to YouTube, but selling this tripe as a bona fide documentary is just plain wrong. Give this woman some tea leaves, and I bet she would come up with the answers to life, the universe, and everything.

I watched this on Netflix, and it was comedy gold. It has since been removed, but hopefully they will add it back into rotation. My feelings about this movie have already been expressed by many others. It is garbage, and Pearl Jr. Has mental issues. I am also fairly positive that she is also the one writing the 5 star reviews, since most of them contain the same grammar and strange spellings of the word "believer".
It is entertaining, but you will be mad at yourself if you spend actual money to watch this masterpiece. It has no rhyme or reason, and is narrated by a real wackadoo. However, if you can find it for free, or money is no object, then you should watch this piece of crap.

I haven't been a fan of Michael Jackson since Thriller, and I don't usually buy into conspiracy theories. But this documentary intrigued me because I believe Jackson was just bizarre enough and fed up with being scrutinized to do something like fake his own death, so I watched this with an open mind. "Pearl Jr." lost any credibility about 3 minutes in. She hangs her specious argument on flimsy bits of information that she presents as irrefutable fact. Among the evidence: she finds it suspicious that Marlon wore an FBI hat the day after Michael died. Not sure where she was trying to go with that one. Also, Janet wore white--not black--to a memorial service, so she couldn't really be in mourning. And although his legal name was apparently Michael Joe Jackson, the autopsy lists him as Michael Joseph Jackson, so it couldn't be him. Right, because it's far more likely that the autopsy was faked than that someone saw "Joe" and assumed it was short for "Joseph." She lays out a lot of "proof," but my favorite was this (a fragment of her "seven" theory): the ambulance and firetruck responding to the emergency call were both number 71, there are 17 letters in Jackson's name, and according to the Office of Personnel (which she pronounces "personal") Management (OPM) of Los Angeles, OPM71 is their code for a "request for leave or approved absence." This is followed by a cutaway to Pearl Jr., saying "I'm not making this up!" Yes, clearly this indicates that his death was a hoax, because I'm sure someone who was busy plotting to fake his death and subsequent disappearance would have taken the time to find and use such an obscure piece of information.Read more ›
