Storyline

In this mockumentary spoof of Elvis theories, Elvis has been FOUND ALIVE! After visiting Graceland, a Freedom of Information Act request is made for US government files on Elvis Presley. Incredibly, documents arrived from the FBI revealing an address for Federal Agent "Jon Burrows," Elvis' 1970's alias, in Simi Valley, California. After a brief confrontation, Elvis agreed to chronicle the secret history of his life and "death" in an exclusive interview. In Elvis Found Alive, Elvis reflects on his early life and career, and describes his admiration for his look-alike, comic book hero Captain Marvel Jr. He explains that social unrest in the late 1960's and terrorism by the Weather Underground drove him to ask President Nixon to make him a Federal Agent. "If I could help save America, maybe it was my true destiny that God had prepared me for." Elvis reveals that he battled Weatherman Bill Ayers and the Mafia crime families during the 1970's, leading to a faked death to go undercover. ... Written by Joel Gilbert

An under-rated and unheralded master class
9 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a whimsical, fantastical whirlwind ride through popular history from the mind a still living, not deceased - Elvis Presley. A parallel universe if you like.

Some reviewers seem to believe that the film/documentary makers are trying to rip-off Elvis or destroy his reputation and memory. That is not the case and misses the whole point of story – it is a spoof, not to be taken seriously or to be offended by.

I found the 2 hour documentary to be a tongue in cheek light hearted look back at some of the United States' culture, from the mob to black panthers and weathermen to FBI and DEA busts all intermingled with Elvis' life story.

The two hours runtime flew by and was perfectly segmented into chapters. The two story lines - from the 1950's up until 2012 - are obviously separate, running parallel but in no way related to each other, however the makers of this documentary have melded and merged two factual groups of events into one magical Elvis mystery tour, which has been done to perfection.

For viewers who are not aware of the subject matters it must be made clear that some points discussed in the documentary are true and some are rumour and some simply not true. So don't take the contents as historical fact.

I can't recommend this title highly enough, an under-rated and unheralded master class. 9/10.
