Rocketman (2019)

Rated R for language throughout, some drug use and sexual content

Quote:An epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years.

It's a straightforward rock star biopic, but one done with a lot of flair and an eye for presentation. What I loved was the "broad strokes" approach it took to telling the story of Elton John, with most of the movie being him recounting his hazy, conflicted memories of his childhood and career while at the darkest moment of his life, instead of claiming to be historically accurate and falling into the trap that Bohemian Rhapsody did (or being too dry like Jersey Boys). Taron Egerton also made for a great Elton John, especially given how different he was from the Kingsman movies; mark my words, he's gonna be a star. It didn't really do anything new, but it did it well, and that was what put it over the top.

My full review is here.
