The finished film does manage to throw up some interesting ideas as various interviewees... wrestle with notions of cultural appropriation while others reflect on what Elvis's gluttonous career says about America.
The insistence may inspire a furrowed brow here, a rolled eye there, and a shaken fist or knowing nod over yonder, but there's enough earnest comment and good music to make the effort worth seeing and chewing over.
