This movie is absolutely loaded from start to finish with symbols and subtext that only people who read VC will recognize. It is a smorgasbord for those with eyes to see.
Right off the bat it shows you who (or what is more accurate) Colonel Tom Parker is (played by pedo Tom Hanks)
This isn’t typically a movie I would go see in theaters especially since I never bought an Elvis record or even seen one of his movies. I did think he was incredibly talented -well you will easily see why. I can only say I was guided to see it and I’m glad I went. There is zero bloody violence in it either it could almost be rated G – it is intended for the entire family. Nice wholesome satanic fun for the kids too.
They really hold nothing back it seems many movies are getting bolder and bolder in the face ‘realism’.
If you choose to see it be prepared for a tremendous amount of powerful symbology, sub text and subliminals that are not to be taken lightly.
The production values are all top notch everything about this movie is extraordinary.
I am also not the least bit surprised Austin Butler, who played Elvis, was hospitalized after the conclusion of filming. It must have been an extremely rough shoot. Duality and mirroring.
An interesting side note – I first tried to see this on Monday and in the opening sequences within the first 5 minutes when the crescendo is building that the Colonel is about to do this big thing – take total spiritual control about to touch Elvis on the back with his Evil Clown Staff – the power goes out in the entire building. I believe it was a square block because there were traffic lights out too.
I received a raincheck and left the theater. I have been inquiring will God what this was about the timing was too coincidental.
