THE KING

OUT 24 AU­GUST

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Some four decades af­ter Elvis’ death, Eu­gene Jarecki em­barks on a mu­si­cal road trip in the late star’s sil­ver Rolls Royce, ex­plor­ing whether the singer’s rise and fall can be seen as metaphor for the cur­dling of the Amer­i­can dream. Com­bin­ing archival footage and ob­ser­va­tions from the likes of Ethan Hawke, Greil Mar­cus and Chuck D, this am­bi­tious doc pro­vides a ques­tion­ing snap­shot of Trump-era Amer­ica. Tom Daw­son
