Saw this in the cinema, it was like getting on a train that sped fast until the closing credits. It's breaks free of the usual tired tropes of the biopic and is more like a musical fantasy ; a reframing of the difficult parts of an artist's life into a work that transports and transcends. (The narrative though-line is Elton checks himself into a rehab for addiction and tells his life story in group therapy sessions.)
