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
I would actually like to see a series of these 'interviews' with historic celebrities. "Einstein Found ALive", "Jesus Found Alive", "Caveman Found Alive".
Using stock footage, public documents and existing testimonials the producers have crafted a compelling look at the life and times of Elvis Presley.
Get over the whole 'he is still alive' angle and enjoy a semi-autobiographical narrative of a celebrity who lived through WWII, the Civil Rights movement, the Summer of Love and the Nixon/Carter/Reagan presidencies.
It's an entertaining telling of the Elvis story with some socio-political biases (Elvis hates Obama).
I like Elvis' music in the same way I like Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. Fun 'Oldies' stuff.
This is more of a 'My Dinner with Andre (Elvis)' and should be appreciated on that level.
