Liz Taylor: MJ Film Is Greatest Movie Ever Made!

10/26/2009 7:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Liz Taylor saw an advanced screening of the Michael Jackson docu-film "This Is It" last night -- and to say she liked it could be the biggest understatement of all time.

Liz Taylor, Michael Jackson

Taylor went to Twitter just moments ago where the star of such Hollywood classics like "Cleopatra," "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" and a ton of other iconic films wrote the following statement about "This Is It":

"It is the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen."

Liz continued, "I wept from pure joy at his God given gift. There will never, ever be the likes of him again."

UPDATE
: Taylor is blasting Tweet after Tweet ... she just referred to Michael as a "modern day prophet."

#29, TMZ should pull your ass off of here, you have shown the most foul, vile, pathetic language to a great woman, who you know nothing about her or her career. You are the most rude, disrespectful post I have seen. Obviously your mother did a terrible job of raising you, you disrespectful POS. Shame on you!

Justice for MJ

Liz made some great movies in her day, but as much as I like Michael Jackson, it seems a stretch to call, as someone else here mentioned, a rehearsal the greatest movie ever made. http://newsy1.wordpress.com

Rap sucks    

Um... he was NOT the best entertainer this world has had. Sure i can't say he wasn't talented. But, there are much better artists out there and that does not include pop, or hip hop f@gs. Or Kanye west. F you i don't care what you think!

#60 thats why I never read the comments because theirs a lot of crazies out there. Pay no attention those people arent with reality have no manners and are just really really sad and want attention and very insecure. We got to remember that it doesnt matter what those people say MJ and Liz is awesome and their are just some rude jugemental people out there but you just got to let it roll off your shoulders.

MJ continues to break records beyond the grave. This movie will indeed be one of the best. He cannot be touched. Haters: Sit back, STFU, and just watch the magic happen!

I don't think she's senile . I think this puts the image of Michael Jackson as a brilliant singer , dancer, arranger , choreographer and
collaborator. I think those who can see it will put that image of him into their minds . Not all the horrible pix and stories , real and unreall that were written about him. I think it will help his children see him again in the context of superstar who is well loved. After what they have been through this is the right thing to do .

Liz, what about that fact he was a child molester who gave kids wine and had child porn on his computer and in his room at Neverland when they served the search warrants?

"Modern Day Prophet" or disgusting child molester who raped young boys?

Sweet and sentimental but how does that make your co-stars, former directors and screenwriters feel, Dame Liz?

I am curious to see if indeed concert practice footage is better than "Virginia Woolf" or "Cleopatra". Maybe as much makeup as "Cleopatra" but movie-greatness?

It might be time to think about some assisted Tweeting.

#65 Michael Jackson is most definitely the best of ALL time, please come out of denial. Just do any google search for "Greatest Entertainer of All Time" and see what comes up.

She is speaking from her heart...leave her alone. She has lost a great friend. Do you haters even have friends? I bet the movie is excellent. He is after all, the KING OF POP. I can't wait to see it on the 28th.
