If you weren't an Elvis fan before this you will be. Seeing his story unfold makes his music so much better. Austin Butler was amazing as The King Of Rock & Roll. Tom Hanks is amazing as Parker
Austin butler was amazing and i love luhrmann’s style i wish we could get a longer cut with iconic scenes from other Elvis movies but so far for me this is better than bohemian rhapsody the style of luhrmann goes well with Elvis and i didn’t mind the new school music in some parts because it attracts younger audiences that listen to that type of music like myself i am a 18 year old Elvis fan ever since i was 12.
Elvis – in so many ways a sort of kitsch-art earnest version of Walk Hard – is to the traditional musician biopic what Las Vegas is to a traditional city. An idealized reality so manically constructed that it becomes a sort of grotesque, like an absurd parody of Americana rendered in pastel Formica and crushed velvet. It’s real sicko shit, and in that sense it’s hard not to love it.
Elvis seems perfectly content being a glitzy, bejeweled extravaganza, even when the film’s nearly three-hour runtime leaves its energy — which never fully recovers after the first half — waning by the end.
Elvis is the Baz Luhrmanniest film Baz Luhrmann has made yet, a compilation of his greatest filmmaking hits, all employed for a film as excessive and grandiose as Elvis himself. Though the framing device doesn't always work, Austin Butler's stunning performance, lavish production design, and comic book-like editing make for a movie not unlike one of Elvis' own — full of personality, kind of empty, but undeniably enjoyable.
