Baz Luhrmann's Elvis is a dizzying and at times even overwhelming chronicle of the rock icon. Austin Butler is stellar as Elvis, giving it his absolute all in every scene. Tom Hanks cleverly plays against type as the manipulative and greedy Colonel Parker. While the supporting cast isn't given as many dimensions as they could have been in say, a TV miniseries, Luhrmann tells Presley's story on a grand scale suited only for the big screen, delivering an epic yet intimate maelstrom of emotions, music, ideas, and eye candy. The film's breathless pacing may befit the fevered lifestyle of a rock star, but it can also rush through necessary moments of dramatic reflection. Baz Luhrmann's Elvis is a wild ride clearly made with a big hunk o' love for its subject, and that zeal for capturing Presley's humanity, both by its director and its star, outweighs the film's excesses and shortcomings in the end. Elvis made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. It opens in theaters on June 24, 2022.
