Daryl’s review published on Letterboxd:
Elvis is a biographical film directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell as Elvis Presley in their first film collaboration. An interesting insight into the life of one the most iconic musicians, with a story that reads true and is really entertaining. Kurt Russell is absolutely fantastic and pulls off a great Elvis and Shelly Winters was brilliant playing Elvis' mother. The direction was strong from Carpenter, and although I didn't necessarily have any issues with the pacing of the film, the editing could have been much tighter in places. Overall Elvis is a film I loved, and the music was fantastic.
