Editorial Reviews

In this mockumentary spoof of Elvis theories, ELVIS has been FOUND, ALIVE! After visiting Graceland, Director Joel Gilbert made a Freedom of Information Act request for US government files on Elvis Presley. Incredibly, documents arrived from the FBI revealing an address for Federal Agent "Jon Burrows," Elvis' 1970's alias, in Simi Valley, California. After a brief confrontation, Elvis agreed to chronicle the secret history of his life and "death" in an exclusive interview.

I think ELVIS FOUND ALIVE is very much fun to watch.In this faked documentary Gilbert finds out that Elvis is alive. He trackes him down and the King even agrees to do an interview. What follows is a very entertaining mixture of facts, rumors and the authors own fiction. The interview is especially funny, because all kinds of phrases from real interviews and press conferences are used. Besides that the interview is spiced up with pictures (real and fake), movie trailers and 8mm films.

Whether or not if it is true. It was entertaining and captured me and held me til the end. Good information about Elvis. Sure it may not be true. But who cares. It is still recommended by me to watch it.

OK, for the price and the premise, my expectations were low. And, the intro wasn't encouraging. The sound and video quality and the narrator were amateurish, like a college vid project. But, when 'The King' appears, seated, backlit, in the 'witness protection style' in what looks like the 'jungle room' at Graceland, it got better fast. 'Elvis', as other reviewers have noted, has the voice down cold! What he says and how he says it, even the chuckles and asides are creepy real, and so much fun. What I didn't expect and was so happy to watch, is that the majority of the running time is a warm and accurate review of Elvis's life story, told with great film clips and stills. It's like sitting in Graceland, listening to Elvis tell his own life story to home movies. It's all there: his frank admissions to prescription drug dependence, his ups and downs with his 'mafia', Priscilla and the Colonel. What I learned new was his incidental brushes with organized crime through the Rat Pack and of all folks, the Colonel! I've just re-discovered Elvis after 50 years of neglect, and a tour of Graceland this past December. This weird movie is something I will want to share with friends and watch again. It's just fun and a lot better than I expected becuase it isn't all just some jokey send up, although there is some of that at the end, to fulfill the premise.

In the beginning he seems like he could be reading from a book but as the story goes on then he begins to get more relaxed and the missing pieces all start to fit in together but our newly elected President Obama ruins it all. You'll understand how in the end.

This thing certainly shows show creative license, but, generally in the right direction for what I'll call "mock credibility". Foremost, it paints what quite a few people believe at his core Elvis surely must have been - the hippest square cat ever. I mean that as a compliment. Except for the curious manager his lot became tangled with, Elvis was just a super talented man with the heart of a child. Elvis only showed signs an of his own choosing apart from his controlling manager who probably was a Dutch murderer never convicted. This is real fact stranger than fiction.

As for this movie. It starts out a little shaky, like it's a very low budget joke without real direction. That's misleading as soon as Jon Burrows is on screen things really pick up. First there's the voice which is exactly, I mean perfect, spot-on Elvis's voice. This is amazing! Think of this, real voices are hard to sustain complete belief, heck no voice artist who've tried have ever even created a reasonable facsimile of any single one of Mel Blanc's "created" voices of any of the Looney Tunes characters. I say this because created voices are generally accepted to be easier to mimic than actual real voices. The voice of Elvis here is the voice of Elvis and it never veers into fakery. This isn't to say it's Elvis, I know it isn't but it is the jumping off point where this film begins to shine. But, then there's the thoughtful progression of very real topics that Elvis would be sure to have an opinion. In life we only got to get a glimpse of Elvis's personal views on topics such as music, drugs, crime, and politics. I believe the dialogue between Elvis and the writer/filmmaker proves he was very aware of just what Elvis might like to say and, generally, didn't at the time he was alive.

Hard to believe, very compelling!!! I don't know if it true. He was only 42, and didn't we all know when we heard. Right away there were claims it was NOT human flesh but wax figure. Bill Bixby had a afternoon report on how he did it. But the logic of this interview and what his guide was unusual but not unheard of if these comic book is truly was his self fulling prophecies. One could understand if he truly was not making the money in his career anymore, had an outrageous contract where Col Tom Parker took 50% of his performances. An artist was never a legend until they die. An artists work is worth more when they are a memorie. It makes financial sense. We all knew he gathered badges even as a federal agent granted by Nixion. His middle name misspelled on the headstone and the death certificate and his medical records were never misspelled. Documentation lacks an autopsy. When the all those at Graceland had contridictory stories. The most heard was he fell off his toilet and so mothered in the shag carpet. It makes you think...there was truly a pictures of him spotted watching people viewing his casket. Before Elvis impersonators were building a reputation. Who could mock or afford his jumpsuits while he had the trademark or them. The Osmonds and David Cassidy wore one too. After his death it seemed a army of fake Elvis's were encouraged.
