(2019 UK / USA 121 mins)
Dexter Fletcher’s fabulous Elton John musical is a heart-racing, toe-tapping, all-glitter-cannons-blazing triumph on its own terms … Not only does Egerton have Elton’s look and mannerisms down to an uncanny degree, he also musters up enough of his subject’s signature showmanship to give a performance that’s joyously at peace with its own preposterousness. The film’s remove from reality also allows Fletcher to deploy a swathe of Elton’s best-known songs however he likes, from montage background tracks to live performances, full-blooded musical numbers, and flights of pure pop fantasy that skate thrillingly between the two.
