"CANNES. Hollywood would of course have a new megasuccé Queen-biography, ”Bohemian rhapsody”.nElton John-the biography ”Rocketman”, a world premiere at the cannes film festival, is better. Smarter, more intrusive, but also more demanding, not as unctuous."
"Directed by Dexter Fletcher, with Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Gemma Jones, Bryce Dallas Howard."
"DRAMA. It is quite obvious to compare the films. Not just to the Queen-the film set a new standard for how successful an artist biographies can be. Director Dexter Fletcher would have done it, but the film company thought his version was too black. Now he still do the movie finished, when director Bryan Singer ballade uru002Ffick fired."
"I liked the Queen-the film also, despite the fact that it was sometimes quite superficial and klichéfylld."
"n”Rocketman” goes more in-depth. Is more a kind of impressionistic version of rockmyten. And where the Queens music over the years, sometimes has been to allsångsrefränger on fotbollsläktarna, is Elton Johns songs, with Bernie Taupins excellent texts, more things that grow for each listening, more thought-provoking."
"Dexter Fletcher has very smartly turned many scenes into a kind of dream sequences, or anniversary celebrations in paris, with Elton Johns well-known melodies as a backdrop."
"It begins with Elton John (Tarin Egerton, excellent) visit an AA meeting in full konsertutstyrsel. Crazy costumes, sequins, zany glasses. You get a lot of things for money in this movie. He tells the story of their abuse – and then rolled his life up in the recaps."
"He understands early on and acknowledges to himself that he is gay, girlfriends, and a short marriage becomes a parenthesis in life, most of it to be so. The relationship with manager John Reid (Richard Madden) is destructive and loveless, he is only looking for sex and money. And it is at times heartbreaking how Elton John in vain looking for confirmation and love of their parents (Steven Mackintosh, Bryce Dallas Howard), both as a child and an adult star. The only mainstay in children and young people is the grandmother (Gemma Jones)."
"After the united states-the breakthrough via a gig on the growth rate is only matched Troubadour in Los Angeles (fantastically portrayed in the film), rolls it on with success, money, sex, alcohol, drugs - and collapse."
"nStarkaste the love story in the film is actually a vänskapshistoria, the between Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin, superbly played by Jamie Bell."
"If it becomes fully equal publikrusning as to ”Bohemian rhapsody” remains to be seen. The movie has no such thing where glädjerusögonblick, that when the Queen takes the Live aid gala. Rather, many scenes that involve more in-depth. But the music is at least as good."
"nFOTNOT: the Film has a Premiere Wednesday, may 29."
