The King (2018)
Critic Reviews for The King
Like the director's other projects, this is intelligent and ambitious, but the cultural insights are too familiar to merit yet another trek through Presley's troubled life.
Two elements - America and Elvis - come together in ticklish, surprising ways that expand and delight your perceptions.
Big, bold and overreaching, in love with but also skeptical of its own central metaphor of Elvis' career as a version of America's own history.
Even if one agrees with Jarecki's progressive political position, making Elvis into a metonym for the nation's spiritual corruption starts to feel too much like a contrived rhetorical sleight of hand.
