New Elvis Presley movie gets the ultimate blow stamp: "Bravo to him!

When one throws oneself over such an iconic personality as Elvis Presley, who finally became so tragic, it must be with a certain awe for any filmmaker.

 

That's why everything else has to be fun with the director Baz Luhrmann, who with the biography film Elvis portrays The King of Rock'n'Roll when praise comes from the person who was closest to Presley for several years.

Priscilla Presley, who was married to Elvis from 1967 to 1973, has seen the film at a private screening, and she is full of praise. She writes on her Facebook profile:

- For those who are curious about the new movie 'Elvis', Baz Luhrmann, the director, provided a private screening for me and Jerry Schilling [Elvis manager, ed.] At the Warner Studios recently. This story is about Elvis and Colonel Parker's relationship. It is a true story told brilliantly and creatively, which only Baz in his unique artistic way could have delivered.

- Austin Butler, who played Elvis, is excellent. Halfway through the movie, Jerry and I looked at each other and said WOW !!! Bravo to him ... he knew he had big shoes to fill. He was extremely nervous about playing this role. I can well imagine that.

- Tom Hanks was Col. Park in this movie. What a character he was. There were two sides of the colonel, Jerry and I witnessed both. The story, as we all know, does not have a happy ending. But I think you will understand a little more of Elvis' journey, written by a director who put his heart and soul and many hours into this film.

In addition to the words of praise, there is also a new clip where you can get a taste of how Austin Butler becomes the personification of Elvis. See it at the top, just as you can see the original Facebook post at the bottom of the article.

Elvis has its theatrical release on June 23rd.

X: Impressive horror with Xtra everything

We are hardly spoiled with good horror, especially those who are not remakes or sequels. Ti West delivers a hard-boiled slasher that manages to combine blood and sex with thought-provoking, human themes.

"X" is like a really good wine. When you first taste it, it is good and slips easily down your throat. But it is when you are hungry and the fantastic aftertaste comes that you really enjoy. Because even if "X" on the surface is a 1970s-inspired slasher (which also takes place in the mentioned decade) about some crazy lantis who terrorize a porn film production, it has more layers than you can count. When the subtitles roll and you really start to digest the film, you realize that it actually has something to say.
 
One can only applaud the director / screenwriter / producer Ti West, who has previously given us low-budget gems like "The House of the Devil", "The Innkeepers" and "The Sacrament". Clearly a fan of the genre as he previously manages to combine effective retro horror with black humor and human themes. But that, as here, succeeding in including old age, sexuality, prejudice and identity-seeking in a horror film that on paper sounds like a B-film is very impressive.

 It is a film that builds up slowly and subtly but becomes all the more frightening once things start to happen. There are more nasty situations - and a lot of blood - rather than cheap jump-to-effects. We also care about the characters who, despite their flaws and shortcomings, are unusually sympathetic and human to this type of film.
 
Much is due to West's script, which refuses the kind of hip, politically correct dialogue we often hear in modern slasher films. This is not least noticeable in an almost brilliant scene where our main characters discuss their roles in the porn film they record but also in society. How their morals - and in some cases double standards - are reflected in their view of s@x.
 
Someone who impresses all the more is the main character Mia Goth ("Suspiria", "Emma"), superb in a cool double role. Not only is her ambitious porn actress Maxine Minx an unusual heroine who does drugs, fucks and aims hard at the stars. British Goth has also adopted a credible American Southern dialect for the role. But she also plays the older, creepy lady Pearl, where in addition to fantastic makeup, she also gets an older woman's movements and behavior so that it is almost impossible to see that the wrinkled, thin-haired and slender Pearl is actually played by a 28-year-old. It is almost more impressive than Tilda Swinton's contribution as an older man in "Suspiria" (in which Goth also starred).

 
Goth is also backed by a flawless ensemble. It's extra fun to see "Pitch Perfect" star Brittany Snow steal every scene she's in as a promiscuous porn star with a twinkle in her eye. Martin Henderson ("The Ring") does a wonderful Matthew McConaughey imitation better than McConuaghey could have done himself. And between this one, "Scream" and "Studio 666", Jenna Ortega proves that we have a new horror movie star to count on.
 
"X" with its rural and 1970s environment is similar to many classic horror films - but at the same time manages to have something to say between the once-motivated sex scenes and all the happy splatter violence. It's a smart, fun, bloody and nicely packaged gift for fans of the genre who usually have to go through tired remakes and sequels. West and Goth have already filmed a prequel, "Pearl", and expectations are high!

"Hanau": In the wrong film

The director Uwe Boll made a documentary about the Hanau attack: sloppy, irreverent - and unsuitable for any serious discussion.

The German filmmaker Uwe Boll has made a film about the racist attack in Hanau. A documentary with many reenacted and fictionalized game scenes. The relatives of the victims are appalled, the city of Hanau protested against the project.

Boll produced the film anyway and Hanau will be released two days before the second anniversary of the assassination as a video-on-demand. It is scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray in early March. The way there is like a foreseeable escalation, at the end of which there is an unbearable product.

Boll is not the first to deal with violent crimes, behind which state or social structures stand and which are commonly described as "unimaginable". Some filmmakers have already done so. Because you have to deal with these topics, after all, silence is not an option. So the first question is: is a movie a good option?

The director, screenwriter and producer Boll always seems to answer the question with yes. He has not only shot trash and horror films with titles such as Zombie Massacre and House of the Dead, but has also repeatedly dealt with extremely serious issues: the death of the politician Uwe Barschel, the Holocaust, the genocide in Sudan, school shootings and the tunnel war in Vietnam. Every facet of violence interests him. Boll also received praise for Darfur (2009), but many of the films lack depth, they are all striking. And it seemed like a mockery of the victims when, in addition to the historical film Auschwitz, he also created a film that he sees as a parody and in which Nazis experiment on vampires. Some critics regard Boll as the "worst director in the world" and petitions have already been started against him to prevent his films. The early resistance of the relatives and the city is probably due to this. Sensitivity is not one of Boll's characteristics as a filmmaker. But that would be elementary for such a project, as other directors have shown in the past.
