HBO and Channel 4 have put together a two-part documentary series that goes over the allegations made against Jackson over the course of four hours. It looks like the impact of this documentary, which is called Leaving Neverland, could be even greater than that of the R. Kelly documentary which was released at the start of the year. Countless critics who saw the MJ doc at Sundance Film Festival said that it’s completely devastating, completely harrowing and deeply disturbing. (DailyEdge.ie)
