Michael Jackson steals the show in a ghetto-fabulous, all-star Motown transposition of Oz to late-70s New York.
The time has surely come for this ghetto-fabulous, all-star Motown transposition of Oz to late-70s New York. Michael Jackson certainly steals the show as a body-popping Scarecrow, but there’s so much more here. The sheer vista of the dance numbers – yes that’s the World Trade Center plaza playing the Emerald City – evokes the opening ceremony of some fantasy African-American Olympics. If you can suspend disbelief – and can accept a 33-year-old Diana Ross as Dorothy – then you will love this film.
