Fun Mockumentary of Elvis Fandom
30 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a fun and offbeat story of a documentary director given the less-than-stellar task of interviewing people who have "sighted" Elvis. We follow the film maker's attempt to make the documentary, being frustrated at every step along the way. Most of the people he meets are not quite sane, which only adds to his frustration, and feeling that he will be overwhelmed by the absurd.

The movie is really less about the King than it is about the fringe legacy of the King; the out-of-touch segment of Elvis fandom without any common sense or a real life to call their own. It is also about searching for the impossible, and trying to find a way to live with the inevitable result (whether it's the director's attempt to make his documentary, or crazy fans trying to track down the hiding Elvis).

A quiet, but fun indie effort, "Elvis Is Alive" will be sure to please the independent film fan, and maybe even an Elvis fan or two if they have a sense of humor.

Fred Willard and Rip Taylor have the two best cameo turns.
