Movie Reviews

Obviously unauthorized and made on the cheap
EJ Fan | South Bend IN | 12/29/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"There is more to be learned about Elton in a few pages of Philip Norman's biography of Elton than in this hour plus video. No actual Elton music is used or album covers shown. The minimal stock photos and video are disappointingly sparse, many used more than once. The graphics used to show album chart peak dates are cheesy and primitive. The journalists interviewed do include the aforementioned Philip Norman and Paul Gambaccini. They know a lot about Elton's life, but they apparently chose to participate in this project for personal financial gain. The "extras" on the DVD contain interview footage of the journalists not used in the actual documentary. The most interesting portions of this video are news archival snippets about health problems, court cases, and Princess Diana's death and funeral. Nothing much here to recommend. Get a copy of "Tantrums and Tiaras" for an entertaining and interesting look at the real Elton John."
