Watchable but could have been better
26 November 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

It had a lot of potential but it doesn't quite deliver the goods.

The feeling of the film is a bit weird, not necessarily in a bad way though but it's all very dreamy and surreal, perhaps to empathize the fact that our 2 leads are not really quite living in the same world as the rest of us.

With voice-over narration (that reminded me of the ones that Wes Anderson often has in his films) by Burt Reynolds of all people and a cheap 70's look visually you can't say that the effort wasn't there even if the results might been a bit mixed.

I kinda wished that they'd went in even harder with the surrealism and maybe put in a bit of dark comedy moments in it, because many of the dramatic moments (particulary those involving the Presleys) doesn't quite work.

And although the story does indeed involve Elvis Presley, Priscilla Presley and even Lisa Marie in smaller parts it's not at all based on any true story and I don't really think that Ron Livingston managed to capture Elvis' essence for that matter so Elvis fans might be let down based on that alone.

The main focus is on Emily Browning's and Luke Grimes' characters though of course and while they aren't bad their characters could have been a little more fleshed out.

But even if it didn't make me go wow or anything it's not a bad attempt for a first time full length movie by director Eddie O'Keefe.
