    Anyone But You

    ★½

    I'd go to war for Sydney Sweeney, but even still, I can't make myself like this film. A lamentable amalgamation of a script that feel AI generated, thoroughly uninspired direction, flat cinematography, a runtime that overstays its welcome, and pedestrian performances - even by acclaimed actors, complete with a sprinkling of soft, patronizing woke ideology.

    Skip this overlong, expurgatory echoic film, and watch the three minute original of Eli Roth at his best - a reminder what true horror innovation and transgression looks like.

    Make no mistake, this isn't just a 'biopic on Elvis Presley - The King of Rock 'n Roll'. This is an auteur's vision through and through; a categorical triumph of maximalist indulgence and sophisticated tragedy.

    Akin to a cinematic Aria, Luhrmann has crafted an extravagant, bombastic spectacle, forming one of the greatest biographical films of our era. The man himself, Elvis Presley, is an epochal scale of musical genius and metamorphosis; a crucible of Americana - culture and artistry. Luhrmann…
