If you are a bigger fan of the genre, there might be more to enjoy, but for me, The King felt long and tonally confused. None of the performances are bad, but Timothée Chalamet does not stand out as much as he should in this central and classic role. Full Review

3 stars out of 4 -- THE KING has a restless, kaleidoscopic, take-a-snapshot-and-move-on energy. In many ways, it's a documentary about everything, it's a documentary about 'then' and it's a documentary about 'right now.'

In truth, the 140 minutes never seemed extended to me, since Michod avoids wasting time with plot trivialities and goes straight to the point... Full Review

Almost everything about The King works brilliantly, from the casting (not least Robert Pattinson as a deliciously detestable Dauphin) to the generally cracking script by Michôd and Edgerton. Full Review

Rating: B -- The kind of questionable interpretation of Shakespeare that would probably have the Bard scratching his head. Full Review

The two elements -- America and Elvis -- come together in ticklish, surprising ways that expand and delight your perceptions.
