I feel like half a man
"Elvis" is an absorbing biopic,mostly thanks to Kurt Russel's terrific portrayal and a well-chosen music sometimes anachronistic ("until it's time for you to go" which can be heard during Elvis AND Priscilla's romance was actually recorded in 1972) Shelley Winters is the prefect choice for Elvis' s mom ;Elvis is not shown as an uneducated moron ,but as a smart young man of taste -he hates the movies he makes:some may remember he was considered for the part of Tony in "west side story".His readings show a personality preoccupied with spiritual longings.

A biopic to be recommended,but nothing is told about Elvis' reaction to the changing music world of the sixties .

Elvis is often,on the other hand,haunted by gloomy thoughts about his late twin brother.
