Elvis & Nixon Movie Review 

The untold true story behind the meeting between Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n Roll, and President Richard Nixon, resulting in this revealing, yet humorous moment immortalized in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.
I watched this movie on a whim and I’m glad I did because I had no idea that such a meeting actually took place.
Apparently, Elvis really wanted to add an FBI badge to his honorary badge collection. Well… he also wanted to become an undercover agent-at-large but he seemed to mostly care about acquiring that badge. 
He somehow believed that he could go deep undercover and infiltrate popular bands and protest groups in an effort to squelch all protests against the establishment.
Michael Shannon gives a pretty interesting performance as Elvis Presley. He portrays him as a vulnerable yet complex character. Kevin Spacey also gives an equally interesting performance as President Nixon.
If you’re in the mood to watch something satirical then I definitely recommend watching Elvis & Nixon.
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give it 8 tasty tamales! 😎
