leslie’s review published on Letterboxd:
this was everything i needed to see. never thought i would honestly love a biopic so much like rocketman. brilliant performances, especially from taron egerton, who shines so effortlessly giving a beautiful yet powerful performance like i’ve never seen from him. award season is looking very good for him!
besides that, i admired how this was a full on fantasy musical. elton johns songs are so iconic and i found myself wanting to sing to them throughout the movie. the costumes as well are a big part of why elton john embraced who he really was on stage.
this is how a biopic should be. rocketman did that exactly.
