Not Tom Hanks gaslighting me on big screen that I killed Elvis Presley… God damn.
I can’t feel bad about EP for hiring a literal stranger as his manager. That’s on him. Biopics like this makes me realize how shitty everyone in the Hollywood is and you can’t trust no one. I don’t really pity artists who get conned by their managers because they have the money to investigate literally every person they know but they chose to trust them instead (or maybe I just have severe trust issues). The biopic obviously sided with EP, hence the title, but I wish EP wasn’t removed of the accountability of doing something before it’s too late.
Also I felt dizzy watching this. I know this is a Luhrmann film but holy shit.
