An under-rated and unheralded master class, 9 May 2015
Author: James Farmer from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
