Sad and involving
4 August 2004 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Usually the presence of an Elvis impersonator guarantees a movie is a piece of crap. "Eddie Presley" is an exception. There are plenty of rough edges, but the fine moments more than make up for

them. Duane Whitaker is good as Eddie, the broken down, would-be faux king of rock

and roll. Whitaker wrote the play the film is based on and it's obviously a very personal project. His Eddie is memorable. Director Jeff Burr delivers a fine looking movie and as is his usual strength, gets some fine performances out of the supporting cast. The underrated Glu Gulager, Roscoe Lee Brown and Daniel Roebuck are exceptional. "Eddie Presley" has some very funny moments, but the humor is like a lifeboat tossed on a sea of despair and desperation. An independent film with an independent spirit and a big heart.
