    Baby, let’s play house

    In Elvis, Southerners are introduced to a fresh world of rhythm and blues and sex appeal. While the nation’s purist forces riot and shrivel up, the crowd, as always, goes crazy :) I’m an occasional maximalist and my weakness is that staple Baz Luhrmann treatment, so I was thrilled to see this blank page of a biopic get filled to the brim with “flashy doodles”.

    After this absolute gift, the answer is yes, I will be calling Saul.
