IN STORES NOW

Culled from rehearsal footage shot last spring for Michael Jackson's London shows, this doc reveals an agile, energetic entertainer who displayed no warning signs of an impending death. Yes, MJ is as eccentric as ever: He wears sunglasses during dark rehearsals and, even when demanding more of crew and musicians, he uses his strangely breathy voice. Yet Jackson's perfectionism produces impressive results, especially when he belts out classics such as "Thriller" and "Smooth Criminal." In all, a captivating peek at the last months of an icon.
