[BLOG]: Bohemian Rhapsody - POPULAR Review

Bohemian Rhapsody - POPULAR Review

FEARLESS LIVES FOREVER Singer Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor and bass guitarist John Deacon take the music world by storm when they form the rock ‘n’ roll band Queen in 1970. Hit songs become instant classics. When Mercury’s increasingly wild lifestyle starts to spiral out of control, Queen soon faces its greatest challenge yet â€" finding a way to keep the band together amid the success and excess. Title : Bohemian Rhapsody (2018-10-24) Original Title : Bohemian Rhapsody Watch this link!:  Bohemian Rhapsody Runtime : 135 min. Genre : Drama, Music Stars : Rami Malek, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Lucy Boynton, Aidan Gillen Review: I did a quick scroll through my Letterboxd Diary to say this accurately: this is the worst movie I've seen in theaters this year. This movie is not a biopic. Nothing about it, from the hugely broad acting to the atrocious script, seems believable in any way. It's a half-baked "Hard Day's Night At The Opera" that fails in almost every category. The first, and most important, is believability. Even without the ham-fisted "squabbling band" dynamic, even without completely glossing over Freddie Mercury's true hedonism, Bohemian Rhapsody makes a bastard play-doh sculpture out of the truth. And I don't even know the truth! Either this movie told the real story of Queen down to the littlest detail, in which case the story of Queen is snore-inducing, or it's so fake that boredom is just a byproduct. The only thing I felt I learned was that Freddie Mercury was married for a while. Any movie that tells a "true" story accounts for artistic license to make it interesting. Bohemian Rhapsody is so Stalinistically revised that it somehow makes Queen look like the Rutles (but without the laughs). I feel that revisionism serves the true goal of this movie: to fetishistically glorify Queen. There's absolutely no struggle involved with being a fantastic rock group. When Rami Malek sings, he's instantly perfect. Not a crack, not a vocal warm up. Just perfection. The revelation of "Bohemian Rhapsody" is almost pornographic. Sticking it to critics from fourty years ago seems like a mature decision. It's a plastidipped, 70s retro-pornographic bullshit romp. My advice is to buy a Queen album (less than a movie ticket), watch some Live Aid footage, and start fantasizing any old story you want.
