Rocketman ★★★★

Oh no, not flashbacks - I hate movies that are told in flashbacks. It ruins the rhythm and takes you out of the story. But somehow, here, Rocketman gets away with it. Maybe it’s because the flamboyant outfits and fab music are distracting me. Also the weird dream-like sequences were unexpected but kind of worked (?). I’d actually forgotten how much I like Elton John’s music, and Taron Egerton plays him very well.
