kinojay33's rating of the film Elvis: Strung Out

What an incredibly timely piece from an objective neighbor from the North. A disintegrating celebrity asks us to distrust not only the media, but our own eyes and best judgement, to believe instead his lies. Meanwhile, a cult of loyal fans intoxicated by the cult of celebrity buy into it hook, line and sinker. What glitters isn’t always gold, what entices isn’t always the truth. Hypnotic editing fits the theme well.
