Review In A Nutshell:
Baz Luhrmann’s usual sensibilities swiftly make their mark in Elvis, creating a vibrancy that gives the overall experience a delectable flavour. The narrative showcases not only a timeline of his career but also the pieces and contexts that have shaped it, thus a justified (almost) 3-hour runtime. With a commanding lead and supportive performances, it carries with it a theatrical flavour that feels appropriate. Nuance may feel absent but it comes with an assurance of entertainment.
