Baz Luhrmann has given us another pointless explosion of super-spangly sparkles in celluloid form. It’s not a movie so much as a 159-minute trailer for a film called Elvis – a relentless, frantically flashy montage, epic and yet negligible at the same time, with no variation of pace. At the end of it all, you might find yourself pondering the eternal questions: what does Luhrmann think of Elvis’s music? Does he, for example, prefer some Elvis songs to others? Has he listened to any of Elvis’s songs all the way through? Choose an example of language shows that the writer was unimpressed with the film 'Elvis'(2)
