Elizabeth Taylor On Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’: ‘It’s The Most Brilliant Piece Of Filmmaking I’ve Ever Seen’

Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” film isn’t out until Wednesday, but already, one of the late pop star’s best friends has branded it a masterpiece.

On Monday, Elizabeth Taylor spent around 40 minutes posting dozens of messages on her Twitter account, raving about the film, which she saw last week during a private screening on the Sony lot in Los Angeles.

The film legend called “This Is It” — a movie put together from the rehearsal footage of what would have been the July 2009 concert series of the same name — “brilliant.”

“It is the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen,” Taylor, who has starred in hugely lauded films, including “Cleopatra,” “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Wolf,” “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof” and “Suddenly, Last Summer,” wrote. “It cements forever Michael’s genius in every aspect of creativity.

“To say the man is a genius is an understatement,” she continued in another post. “He cradles each note, coaxes the music to depths beyond reality.”

Taylor, who was greatly saddened by Jackson’s passing on June 25 at the age of 50 from acute Propofol intoxication, wrote that the film brought her to happy tears.

“I wept from pure joy at his God given gift. There will never, ever be the likes of him again,” she Tweeted. “And we have this piece of film to remind us forever and ever that once there was such a man. God kissed him.”

In her posts, Taylor referred to Jackson’s lyrics as “those of a modern day prophet,” and suggested people should listen to songs like “Man In The Mirror” and “take his words of responsibility seriously.”

Taylor, herself a two-time Oscar winner, suggested the film should be “nominated in every category conceivable.”

And the 77-year-old also suggested everyone should see the film.

“You owe it to yourselves and your loved ones to see this again and again. Memorize it and say to yourselves, ‘I saw genius in my lifetime,’” she wrote. “I loved genius in my lifetime. God was so good to me. I will love Michael forever and so will you, if you don’t already.”

Before wrapping up her postings, she urged people to remember Jackson and his message of “love.”

“We cannot let his life be in vain / and always done with love,” she wrote.

  1. "Dizer que o homem é um gênio é um eufemismo"
    Enfim, eu nem vou começar a conspirar sobre o que ela postou ontem... mas nota-se que em algumas postagens dela, ela usa muito o presente, e isso fica meio evidente do meio de outras frases usando o passado. Ele É um gênio, no caso ele não ERA?
    Mas acima de tudo, senti muito amor e gratidão de ter amizade com Michael Jackson por parte dela, sem dúvida a união dos dois era inabalável. Ela foi/é um papel importante na vida dele.
    *Depois dizem que as celebridades não têem tempo para ficar no computador!!!??? A Elisabeth é um exemplo que tem.
    Beijos e bom início de semana.

  2. Outra coisa... rssssss
    Alguém neste momento AINDA tem dúvida que NÃO haverá caixão e nem corpo no filme?
    Se houvesse... pode ter a certeza que a Elisabeth não seria a favor da divulgação, e nem estaria dizendo há milhares de pessoas para ir assistí-lo.

  3. Por incrivel que pareça, eu estava seguindo Dame Liz Taylor ontem no Tw, quando ele começou a postar, e não posso e nem devo mentir; minhas emoções vieram a flor da pele. Chorei muito.
    Mas houve um momento em suas postagens em que ela parecia se dirigir a uma única pessoa.
    Hoje é a pré-estreia, com tapete vermelho e tudo.
    Agora é correr para ver se vai passar on line.

  4. "I hope I don't sound condescending. I'm sure you already know what I'm talking about, but go to see it again and again."
    Seria essa a mensagem particular da Liz??

    MP parabéns pelo blog!
