“If I can’t move, I can’t sing.”

Elvis (Baz Luhrmann, 2022)

I love Baz Luhrmann. I find his filmmaking style so joyous and fun. This film contains many of his trademarks: fantastic flourishes of color, kaleidoscopic effects, endearing camp, and elaborate scene transitions. Unfortunately, this movie is not good. It’s kind of incoherently structured and mostly confused. Butler was great as the titular character, and I applaud that he actually sings (unlike another highly-awarded actor from a recent biopic). I have absolutely no idea what Hanks was thinking with this part. A shockingly terrible performance.
