Take a moment of remembrance for the late, great George Michael with Showtime’s documentary, “George Michael: Freedom.”
Co-directed by Michael and David Austin before the singer’s death in December 2016, it’s a look into the making of his legendary album, “Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. 1.” It also follows the British High Court battle Michael had with his record label and the death of Michael’s partner, Anselmo Feleppa.
The list of interviewees is lengthy for this one, understandably, and includes “Freedom 90” models Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista, as well as fellow musicians Elton John, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, Liam Gallagher, Mary J. Blige and Tony Bennett.
We’re glad this one was in Michael’s hands and will be about significant events from his own perspective, rather than someone else’s cash-in, tell-all, post-mortem.
The film is airing now.
