4/5 81% Michael Jackson's This Is It (2009) Differing greatly from the rough, casual mood of many behind-the-scenes pop docs, this one is instead of a piece with Jackson's body of work: dazzling and strange, blurring the line between fantasy and reality.‐ Los Angeles Times

4/5 83% Youssou Ndour: I Bring What I Love (2009) N'Dour is the film's unstoppable force, handsome and radiating joy. He's the kind of performer who is larger than life but always seems like one of the family.‐ Los Angeles Times

3.5/5 92% U2 3D (2007) 85 beautifully paced minutes of crystal clear, artfully lit shots of Bono and his mates doing their inspirational thing for an arena crowd whose joy surges forth like a tiger in an Imax nature presentation.‐ Los Angeles Times

3/5 47% Idlewild (2006) In its best moments Idlewild connects with OutKast's weirdness. At its worst, the film trades in the very clichés about romance, redemption and music that listeners run to OutKast to avoid.‐ Los Angeles Times
