The American Dream is a conceit that’s woven into the fabric of the country....Eugene Jarecki uses the life of Elvis Presley as an allegory for the lifespan of America, and the death of that dream. -- Grade: A-

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.'

Edgerton plays Falstaff's drunken buffoonery as an old warrior's self-medication, not a fool's personality. But most of all I liked the fight scenes, which unromantically depict the grim, ugly slog of medieval combat. Full Review

This handsomely mounted biopic is an overall muddled depiction of a critical period in European history. Full Review

Rating: 9/10 -- For fans of historical drama and medieval action, The King is a must-see. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The plays are about [Hal's] youth and immaturity - his unreadiness to be king - and Chalamet captures that impetuousness. Full Review
