Always be wary of theatre, Yes, and other artexprint. ModernBill, installations of all sorts, of putting unnecessary bodies and other.

This film — have shaken my opinion.

To take seriously what is happening in screen — impossible to principle. The degree of historical inconsistencies rolls over the boiling point. But how is it looks great.

Anyone at least glimpsed in the newsreel Ave. Nixon, not could not pay attention to its characteristic postures, gestures, landing in the presidential chair. Difficult, very difficult to try to reproduce it. It you gesture famous, Lenin's grandfather, then — the whole complex of behavioral, really sorry for cleverness. And in times complicates the task, I guess not by chance, whether a producer, whether the Director deliberately refused attempts to achieve authenticity with the help of makeup artists Yes makeup and all. And here in the scene spacey. He Kevin spacey. Yeah and in times giving him job that Oh where, where, and in the oval Office, he just — as home only many seasons embodied the character well, a very different character. I think that the incredible complexity of the actor's call, he started Kevin.

Similar situation with the King. Of course, to abandon the services costumer was impossible. So in the case of Elvis, to complicate more the problem, except in the costume of Darth Vader to wear it, the them the gestures the same as in a lot. But, in other respects, a similar situation with Kevin. Even in principle, incompatible type of artist, so immerses you in the image of the King that believe not hesitate to the sweetest absurd that going on screen.

The climax of the film, to which we summed up very delicately and tactfully, meeting the Titans. And the Titans, not metaphorically, but in the truest sense, was and characters historical, and people who played. What is happening on the screen of the Sabbath, was forced to simply gape in the rapture.

Individual and traditional thanks to the dubbing actors. As always in the voice of the official understudy for each character — applause to the skill of the Artist.

The film left an incredibly sweet experience. Most importantly, my opinion, initially, make it is not as a historical chronicle, not as an adaptation of real events, and as charming Comedy, brilliantly implemented.

"Every they were at the peak of his career... but on top of this they feel lonely. despite everything they closer" (Jerry Schilling)

Unknown to me, to this work, Director, Lisa Johnson creates the screen his version of the famous picture of the 37th President of the United States of America — Richard Nixon with the king of rock-n-roll Elvis Presley. The film is based on real meeting that happened in December 1970 in the oval office of the White house. This picture according to statistics, the most in demand in the National archives of the United States. Probably because this picture is a shining example of a combination of not compatible Protocol and informality, conservatism and foppery.

Film Lisa Jones gives us one of a version of the famous moment could be a meeting of two of the most famous, but in the same time completely distant from people in 1970. A film made in the genre of Comedy. In the movie given all the anecdotal situation, the absurdity of what is happening. The first seconds of the film you're trying to understand — fooled you or all happened. Before us on the screen presents Elvis Presley, which with persistence of the maniac repeats what he wants to become a Federal agent in a and he needs a badge. He wrote a letter to the US President and sends it to the protection of the White house. And does it with the utmost seriousness and importance, saying that realized responsible for a new generation. This serious combined with the absurdity of the whole situation comes the unforgettable charm of the picture. Picture as a gentle breeze envelops you with his humor and spontaneity, style and freedom completely fascinating. And is with that the scene is not the plot, it is just one day, one meeting, as if captured on camera and preserved descendants.

In the film, excellent acting work that will appeal lovers to fans of "house of cards", so in the role of the President of the United States Nixon all the same great Kevin spacey, Elvis Presley plays perfectly Michael Shannon. Fans of the singer can say that between them. nothing here we have to agree that the resemblance is missing, but there is an absolute inner certainty that is shocking you with an accurate hit in the image of the king of rock-n-roll — gesture, manner of speech, facial expressions. And even fans of the younger generation is on whom to focus their attention if they are not attracted to the actor's two previous masters. The role of assistant Elvis Presley — Jerry Schilling — got a handsome Alex Pettifer. Nice to see interesting film after impressed me, "Anatomy of love". Finally managed to get a closer look at Colin Hanks, the son of my favorite Tom Hanks. Very good acting in the role of assistant to the President. So that actors on any taste.

The film creates a very good impression after viewing.

Surprisingly, "Elvis and Nixon" was very light and funny film. Sometimes absurd, not claiming to be much a movie about real story, which is really hard to believe. Hardly film Lisa Johnson will be rewarded with worthy of the attention of the audience as and is unlikely to many people know about the meeting of the king of rock-n-roll Elvis Presley and U.S. President Richard Nixon in the oval office.

Surprisingly the authors of the film managed to make an interesting film, having in stock only one main effect — meeting in the oval office. And "Elvis and Nixon" not is an autobiographical film in the classic sense. This film is not from the category "born-grew up, the UPS and downs, sunset career" and etc. Here we have one specific event from the lives of two famous people, and this event, which really no one knows.

I'm not going to argue about the veracity of stories like  & however, exactly shown characters, so as of Presley that Nixon for me the dark forest, but but it is possible with confidence to assert that the actors who played them did your tasks on fine. Michael Shannon showed cool Elvis Presley. Not know what was Elvis in app on-screen image of the Presley, well done Michael Chenin turned out really cool, charismatic and a little odd. At Kevin spacey the task was easy, so he already do not once sat in the oval office and he has a great "presidential" experience. After Frank underwood play Richard Nixon for this level of the actor is not difficult because he showed.

Overall, I would say that "Elvis and Nixon" quite an unusual film, first and foremost its history. Lisa Johnson could make an interesting movie, built on good humor and funny situations, brilliant acting, charismatic characters, well and of course the history which is hard to believe.
