I trusted Baz completely to deliver Elvis, and he did not disappoint.
I think it’s a pretty fair take, inaccurate in spots, but the grandeur of the man is captured. It was an emotional ride like only the best of the best movies can do. I’m so happy to have gotten to see this in theater.
I would say that even if you’re not an Elvis fan you will be by the end. What he did is chronicled perfectly with the historical changes happening all around. Seems like no expense was spared, and the worlds are convincingly authentic. I’m predicting three specific Oscar nods: best actor, best supporting actor and best director. We shall see later.
How could you NOT root for Elvis, when he was all about the music?
