Elvis ★★★★

A dazzlingly eclectic albeit (unsurprisingly) shallow odyssey of one of the most beloved performers of all time. Expect the Baz Luhrmann special - aggressively frenetic editing and a flashy stylistic choice made whenever possible (one man’s trash - I loved it). Some sequences in here are absolutely bonkers and intoxicating, full on goosebumps for five minutes, partially from Baz but ultimately because Austin Butler gives an Oscar-worthy performance that you swear is the real thing in certain moments. The highs are high, but the lows will really sober you up. This doesn’t even scratch the surface of what there is to say but video soon!
