ELVIS (Theatrical Release USA 2022)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Elvis—solid, Grade-A, WOW! movie—accesses the skills of Austin Butler as Elvis and Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker. The movie uses a terrific and unexpected technique of telling the story through the eyes of Colonel Parker rather than through Elvis or his family’s eyes. The scenes have perfect placement and timing. The dialogue remains true to life and new details of the Presley story are brought to the forefront in the storyline. Great work for all involved. This movie ranks as some of the best movies Director Baz Luhrmann has directed. The movie easily earns its watch.
