Square One

Square One mounts a full-throated defense of Jackson against the fees of pedophilia that plagued him within the latter a part of his life and career. The centerpiece of the film lies in its debunking of the initial allegations made against Jackson in 1993. If those allegations are often disproven, the film seems to be arguing, then the next charges against Jackson must be dismissed also . to help during this endeavor, filmmaker Danny Wu has assembled a series of never-before-aired statements from case witnesses, and new interviews with figures in Jackson's clique , including his nephew and 3T band member Taj Jackson. The 1993 case never made it to court. Instead, Jackson paid his accuser - Jordan Chandler - a sum of $15 million to prevent the case in its tracks. The film suggests that the case originated from a bitter litigation between Chandler's parents. In an attempt to achieve full stewardship over his son also as a hefty payout, the daddy drummed up false charges against Jackson and worked feverishly to teach his son to verify these allegations through false testimony. The film damns many of the central players during this sad drama, also because the circus players who roamed on its periphery. The non-stop media coverage of the case led to often misleading, and always sensationalist headlines. A few interviews are offered that support the film's hypothesis that Jackson was wrongfully accused, including conversations with the legal secretary for prosecutor Barry Rothman and, curiously, a series of fans who visited Neverland Ranch. The film also tackles additional controversies associated with the tabloid frenzy surrounding Jackson, including the scrutiny he received from his rare skin condition and therefore the findings from the five search warrants that were administered on his properties. Square One is clearly the work of a lover on a mission, but it's produced with tons urgency and keenness . Viewers will need to decide for themselves if the insights contained within the film effectively disprove the initial accusation from 1993, or build a compelling case for the dismissal of the extra allegations that followed.
