| Truly brilliant.
For those of us of a certain age Queen, and especially Freddie, defined us. Sitting through this movie I had goosebumps. The casting just works and watching the actors playing May and Deacon you'd be forgiven in thinking someone had access to a time machine. Even Kenny Everett was instantly recognisable. I left this movie a strange combination of elated and terribly sad. Elated to hear the music, watch the story and yet sad that Freddie was so desperately lonely. Ultimately, I think Freddie would have approved of the whole thing. His genius and flamboyance shone through. Truly brilliant.

Trivia

At the time of Live Aid (1985) in July 1985, Queen's fortunes had taken a huge dip in the U.S. for several years. Despite still being hugely popular and selling loads of records and regularly charting in their native UK and Western Europe & Australia, by 1985 they were seen as a spent force in the States with so-so album sales. The band themselves may not have helped matters, having appeared in drag for Queen: I Want to Break Free (1984), a video which many conservative broadcasting networks in the United States found offensive, including MTV, who refused to show it. The song therefore only reached number 45 in the US charts but reached the top ten in most European countries (it reached number 3 in the UK where the BBC had no problem showing the full video to a young audience on its flagship 'Top of the Pops' TV show which was broadcast on Thursday early evenings). 'Controversies' such as these and Freddie's increasingly flamboyant displays of 'campiness' seriously hurt their US image. Although celebrated as one of the greatest live performances ever, Queen's performance at Live Aid did nothing to help their career in the US, where their next album, "A Kind of Magic", only peaked at number 46 and failed to produce a Top 40 single. Queen's popularity in the US was not revived until Wayne's World (1992) famously used "Bohemian Rhapsody" and made it a hit again, by which time Freddie Mercury had already died.
