Bad 25: 11 Lessons From Spike Lee's Silver-Anniversary Doc On Michael Jackson's Classic Album

Posted: Updated:

Bad 25, legendary filmmaker Spike Lee’s documentary about the making of Michael Jackson’s Bad album -- not to be confused with Bad 25, the CD/DVD box set reissue of the album, which comes out today -- made its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend.

The documentary, which first screened in Venice this past spring, celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of The King of Pop’s massive follow-up to Thriller by seamlessly weaving the greater narrative of Jackson’s life into a track by track breakdown of the album by Bad collaborators, fellow musicians, industry experts and famous fans.

In honour of that structure, we’ve broken down our thoughts about Bad 25 into a list of eleven things we learned from the film.
