The 1981 documentary begins with awkward recreations of Elvis' early life but soon turns into an excellent introductory portrait of the country boy turned rock and roll phenomenon... Full Review

Unlike previous documentaries, this one focuses on the star's life more than his music and gives the best hints yet of why Presley's skyrocket ride to stardom led him to self-destruct. Full Review

Although the film resembles a child's drawing of a life, it is enlivened by the use of documentary material which, if it does nothing else, at least recreates that era When 'rock-and-roll' was seen as the harbinger of things to come. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- The movie's lesson is brutal, sad, and inescapable: Elvis Presley was a man who gave joy to a great many people but felt very little of his own, because he became addicted and stayed addicted until the day it killed him. Full Review
