  1. i can´t believe that a documentary about marvin gaye DOESN´T have any of his music playing………gaaaaaaaahhhh

  2. I look at these people and see what they are; crap. The guy was worked over, kept in debt via cocaine to his ‘handlers’ sent on a ‘killer’ tour to satiate their greed and every one of them is ugly, ugly and then some inside and out. Sickening. Stuff his ‘sister’ stuff ‘Roland Williams’ stuff his mother who pimped him out,and stuff the lot of them.These lying toe-rags are trying to support the myth that their abused and prostituted son came from a ‘normal’ family. There ain’t nothing normal about these lowlifes and even in death, they continue to run off their mouths for a bit of dough – whores ‘n pimps, pedos and pervs.

    • ah, so this sodomite minister is just like those in power today, wannabe wombmen, dressing up in women’s underwear and the rest of the trash that goes with that. It’s the jews who control the whole damn rotton show and the blacks are their puppies ‘all for the love of G-d’. Shows what a heap of pooh this docu is, portraying the mightly minister as just wanting a ‘perfect family’ with him as mum, dad, rapist and sadistic torturer. Nothing un-use-you-all in the biz, ALL families are like this, selling eachother out for sexual and power gratification for the jews profit. Oh, his salvation was music was it? No, just more abuse to keep his handlers and pappa in fancy stockings and handcuffs.

  3. You can pick the most scuzzy knownithin no-one off the street or out of the nick and promote them to superstar status if you have the desire, designs and the dosh. I liked Marvin Gaye’s music up to a point but then I didn’t know any better as a child, indoctrinated into the kulture, innit? Met a complete nutjob of a sheman in Hong Kong years ago, total cokehead with huge knockers who was still raving about her failed affair with Gaye shortly before he was ‘retired’.

  4. Clue in the name Gaye. Most likely as these people are, sodomised by daddy-o from infancy and pimped to the sodomites of Holly Wood muse-zach biz. Reinsurance scams ensure that people are worth far more dead than alive, once they’ve reached a ‘peak’ performance and these lying, greedy pederasts can continue to cream off a ‘star’s’ reputation for ever with ‘greatest hits’ and hitherto unreleased material.
