Elvis ★★½

Finally! A movie about Elvis's manager!!

Peak Baz -- the opening feels like a biopic by way of The Wachowski's Speed Racer. A brutal 2 hours and 45 minutes with moments of true directorial brilliance but not even an ounce of story.

If "it's cool, I have black friends" were a movie. They introduce the idea of cultural appropriation almost immediately as a way to then seemingly never investigate that idea again. Oh well, the music is fun. Did I hallucinate or did they mix Backstreet Boys and Britney into Elvis songs?

Tom Hanks makes a great 1960s Bond villain.
