Rocketman

Rocketman ★★★★

it spoke to me on a lot of levels and I was happy to see the openess of his sexuality. I also love the theatrics of the whole movie and how wonderfully paced it is.

sometimes I feel like the antagonists of Elton John are sometimes ... too evil?
and another thing about movies that tackle the struggle of illness and addiction - although the idylicc and happy ending makes people feel good, we all know that he probably still struggled for a long time after this, because life is always an uphill battle, not seperated by arcs like in a movie with a nice ending.

p.s. appropriator of glasses culture,unfair that I have to suffer with boring everyday glasses without diamond rainbow frames...
