Suprisingly Honest and In depth.By The Christian Review from UK , 19 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This documentary opens with a soft focus, wooden Priscilla Presley saying 'Good evening...and welcome to Graceland'. Yet what follows is not the sentimental fluff piece that those first few minutes suggest. This is a supringly in depth portrait of the personal life of Elvis. I found the documentary left me liking Elvis' character less. He comes across as a domineering, selfish dictator. One is left with the sense of a complex and tragic figure who remains fascinating today. Was interested to see the section on his religious seeking. Watch out for the bizarre inclusion of songs as a way of conveying Elvis' opinion. (e.g. during a section on Elvis bad temper it suddenly flicks to him singing 'If you're looking for trouble, youve come to the right place'). This could be effective if done once or twice, but this technique is used throughout. All that said, this is not just for fans, give this a go.

HonestBy a customer from Ellesmere Port , 10 Oct 2009I found this to be a very honest and open look by the people that were closest to Elvis. There was plenty of old clips and music of Elvis, his family and friends. It was nice to see that side of his life.
Enjoyable if your an Elvis fan and would like to know more about him as a family man and friend.
