Movie Diary 5/29/2019

Rocketman (Dexter Fletcher, 2019). The Elton John biopic is as frequently silly as you’d expect, and the idea of arranging it as a therapy movie (told from the perspective of an AA meeting) is very, very familiar. But the songs remain their old catchy selves, and Taron Egerton is completely into the role – nobody warned him to play it cool, the way young actors generally play it. (full review 5/30)
