Leaving Neverland is a tough one to swallow, the documentary film premiered at Sundance Film Festival and received a standing ovation all the while not everyone is ready to swallow the legitimacy of this film. For those of you who do not know, Leaving Neverland is a documentary film based on two accounts James Safachuk and Wade Robson, who were allegedly sexually abused by Michael Jackson. Yes, “The Michael Jackson”.

What is peculiar is that the audience has somewhat of a mix opinion towards this, on one side we have the film industry viewers and reviewers and on the other side, we have the general public. The opinion of both carry weight and in most cases they are similar, however, this is not a simple case. While the film might have received a standing ovation the general public has not been moved by this film.

For most of the public viewers, this is perhaps a loss of… peace of mind. People are still not very much convinced with what they had to confront. Most of the viewers seem to refer to it as another attempt to share the spotlight. And they say that referring to the 12 year FBI investigation of Mishael Jackson. Check out the trailer of Leaving Neverland below.

Whatever may be the case, it is not hard to ignore what James Safachuk and Wade Robson had to say. Leaving Neverland following the premiere at Sundance Film Festival received quite a criticism by the general public on what the director Ran Deed said. Deed referring to this documentary is recorded to have said that this film has “nothing to do with Michael Jackson”. While the viewers argue that it, in fact, does just the opposite to what Deed said. They are calling it “malicious, slanderous and defamatory exploitative”.
