Critic Reviews of "Elvis & Nixon"Chicago ReaderApril 28, 2016
The spectacle of Presley visiting Nixon's buttoned-down White House in his jeweled sunglasses, silk scarf, open shirt, and giant gold belt is inherently farcical, but Elvis & Nixon might have delivered more than dumb laughs.New YorkerApril 25, 2016
The dialogue sparkles with gems of historical allusion and perceptive asides, and the actors virtually sing it; the film plays like a whirling sociopolitical operetta.Entertainment WeeklyApril 22, 2016
As a surreal slice of history served up nearly half a century later, it feels oddly satisfying: A reminder not just of simpler times, but of all the other wild untold stories we may never know, just because no camera was there to capture them.Associated PressApril 22, 2016
What the movie, directed by Liza Johnson, lacks in factual material it replaces with whimsy and quirky humour, helped greatly by the casting of Michael Shannon as Presley and Kevin Spacey as Nixon.Time OutApril 22, 2016
A sharper movie would have pushed this bizarre incident into psychological rawness, revealing a shared sense of paranoia. Breezy, comic and disposable, Elvis & Nixon is not that film.Rolling StoneApril 22, 2016
Even when I didn't buy a word being said, I went with the flow. Why? Michael Shannon as Elvis and Kevin Spacey as Tricky Dick. Watching great actors swing for the fences is something special.Critic's NotebookFebruary 27, 2017
When the plot juxtaposes Mr. Shannon's Elvis with professional Elvis impersonators at an airport lounge to reveal the man behind the caricature, the whole film just implodes.Total FilmJanuary 03, 2017
An amusing but slight snapshot of two men disconnected from their personas.Daily StarDecember 31, 2016
Spacey v Shannon is a fascinating showdown between two Hollywood heavyweights.Sunday Times (UK)December 18, 2016
Elvis & Nixon, an otherwise good film, suffers from bad subtitle-itis.MovieMailDecember 13, 2016
It remains a naggingly slight experience: while its showbiz savvy should satiate the Elvis demographic, it feels at least a slight copout that a film where Nixon shares top billing should be so determinedly depoliticised.Movie HabitDecember 12, 2016
I don't know who decided to team Shannon and Spacey in a comedy called Elvis & Nixon, but whoever it was deserves credit for a masterstroke.
