This Is Elvis is an interesting and fantastic documentary to watch even if you are not an Elvis fan.
As an fan, I am very critical when it comes to inaccuracies about his life. I found this documentary to be very accurate and honest with the way it told the story of life. The blend of actual Elvis footage along with very believable reenactments makes the documentary flow with continuity and excitement.
In addition, the song selections that accompanied the various video sequences were always right on the money. It was like watching life story being told through entertaining and poignant music videos.
One thing I respected about the documentary, although difficult to watch, was the way the creators did not try to candy-coat the details of the sad way’ life began to spiral down a self-destructive path during the 70’s until his untimely death at the age of 42.
All in all, This is is a very entertaining, empathetic, and honest look at the life of Presley; the American Icon who rightfully earned the title as the King of Rock ‘n Roll.
