Elvis

Elvis ★★★

Baz Luhrmann’s ELVIS equally dazzles & exhausts. Austin Butler rises above the glam & noise to provide a truly breathtaking performance while Hanks’ work will go down as some of the most perplexing of his career. Great makeup, sound & costumes. The dizzying editing made me nauseous in the first act (which is almost all done in montages) but it eventually settled down, relatively speaking. Still, an opulent mess.
