The exterior footage of early 1970s LA during the Troubadour club era was stock 35 mm footage that was digitally cleaned up as it would have been far too impractical and expensive to redecorate parts of Sunset Boulevard in a 1970s style just for the few seconds of film required. See more »
If you are looking for a documentary style film, this isn't the film for you. It's a fantasy retelling of a man strung out on alcohol and drugs and you will need to keep an open წუთიd and embrace his madness, and fantastical retelling of the highs and lows of his life during this 2 decade stretch of his career (plus childhood). It's not meant to be a historically accurate retelling with his musical catalog being featured in chronological order. If you are seeking that type of story, buy his official autobiography being released in October. If you're willing to embrace the fantasy and appreciate this musical for what it is - you are in for a real treat! Taron Egerton was absolutely brilliant! I felt as though I was watching THE Elton John on a wild acid trip! I suppose that is all part of the fantasy and the grandeur!
