3000 Miles to Graceland
movie review Gary Johnson
Even if you know nothing about director Demian Lichtenstein's background, you won't have to watch much of 3000 Miles to Graceland before you realize how he started his career--as a director of music videos. You can see it in virtually every frame of the movie. The camera spins and twists. It zips down highways at super-accelerated speeds. It tilts and dollies. The editing jitters and zaps us through space. Nothing stays still that can be placed in motion, to twirl, to soar, to explode. And somewhere within this incredibly hyperactive filmmaking, a quintet of Elvis Presley impersonators stalks the Riviera Casino in Las Vegas, intent on pulling off a major heist. Amid the onslaught of filmmaking gadgetry--which even includes giant computer-generated scorpions that battle to the death--the Elvis impersonators drown.
