My review of The King, for The Tulsa Voice. This new documentary from Eugene Jarecki explores how late era Fat Elvis is as a metaphor of Trump’s America.

With keen insight, “Jarecki shows the eerie parallels” between the two. In interviews with individuals both famous and unknown, we see that “people’s views on both (Elvis and America) run just as varied and divisive.”
