A quite fascinating account... - Priscilla review by TB

Spoiler Alert
26/04/2024

I mean, hands up who became acquainted while still at school, romanced with, married, and had a baby with the biggest pop star on the planet?

As long as you don't expect the spectacle of the Elvis movie.. this is a different animal....

I was engrossed with her character - right from the early stages of the romance, her exhilaration was clearly palpable. But I did feel sorry for her (Elvis isn't the most endearing of people), and although she was evidently in love with him, the frustration of her mixed emotions must have been hard to bear.

Good soundtrack, and extra bonus too - no Elvis songs! :)

Painful to watch - Priscilla review by CM

Spoiler Alert
26/04/2024

If this really is Priscilla Presley's life and I feel sorry for a this young girl.

To me the marriage seemed like a lonely one and Elvis seem to be very insecure wanting her and then rejecting her.

to me it was an abusive situation.

Too young for a man like Elvis not only that concerns around the amount of pills they were popping.

I mean what the hell was she doing taking tablets on someone that wasn't a doctor or nurse.

Costumes were good, Elvis wanting to control everything even the girls image, big black bouffant hair and wing eyes.

This film doesn't really tell us much about Elvis himself just what lousy husband he was.

When is DVD if you want to but don't expect too much.

A boring film mediocre acting

A pointless typical female martyr film which manages to make Elvis & the 60s boring - Priscilla review by PV

Spoiler Alert
17/04/2024

I have to confess, I dislike Sofia Coppola movies and find deeply annoying the constant poor me feminist pity party theme and the incessant manblaming for anything bad that happens to women. Sofia, let us remember, is the daughter of famous multi-millionaire film director Francis. Hardly a Dickensian background, MASSIVELY privileged compared to most men or women. Much better film directors out there who never got the breaks.

but to the film: is it engaging, interesting, entertaining? No. It makes me rate the recent ELVIS film much higher actually. The 2005 TV miniseries is great too.

This is awful and tedious. Why? Well because Priscilla Presley is not interesting. She just happened to be the wife of an iconic talented artist, Elvis. She had not discernible talent whatsoever except for looking pretty, if that is a talent at all.

The usual predictable manblaming happens - Elvis is cruel, violent, on drugs, selfish, all the tickbox bad nastywasty man stuff. BUT would we have heard of non-entity Priscilla if he had not chosen her? Elvis had his pick of women and as he said, infidelity is hardly abnormal esp for pop stars.

And there is NO MUSIC. None. A deliberate choice by writer/director to take the focus off Elvis - BUT ELVIS IS THE FOCUS. Priscilla matters not. There is NO mention that her real father died in a plane crash when she was a baby so her Air Force Canadian-born father shown here is her STEP-father.

The best bits are the Memphis Mafia ones -I wanted to hop on their bus and watch that film, not stay with tedious Priscilla and Sofia Coppola's attempt to make her into a metoo martyr.

Watch the Baz Luhrmann Elvis film, not this Priscilla piffle, Or watch a documentary on Elvis, with music, and maybe the tragic family history - Lia-Marie dies aged 54 from heart attack brought on by weight loss bariatric surgery she had undergone. She was on opioids too. Her son, Elvis's grandson, killed himself at the age of 27.

2 stars. Just. A pointless forgettable film, but period settings are nice and the actors manage.
