    Isn't it amazing what bodies can do?

    Visually striking and carries a tonal resonance that grates against your soul just a little bit. Impressive work.

    Bernie Van Tiel is easily one of the most engaging actors working today. I look forward to her star rising rapidly.

    This is a visually interesting short, even if I have no idea what it's about.

    As a lesson in patience, this is really brilliant. Warren Ellis can do no wrong.

    Something truly spiritual and mystical happens when Austin Butler appears on screen as Elvis. He manages to channel, inhibit, and become Elvis entirely. This is a star being made, a legend being born. Baz Luhrmann's Elvis thrives in these moments.

    It's let down partially by the odd performance from Tom Hanks who you can't help but feel is just Hanks with a fat suit on and a weird accent. With that said, I'm not sure you could ever cast anyone who could make the Colonel a character that feels less that filthy or out of place in this world.
