Seeking to tell Elton’s story in flamboyant fashion, director Dexter Fletcher has approached the film with a hyper-real quality that veers left from many other biopics. And with this new approach which focuses on the dreamlike quality of his music and his fantastical and hedonistic life, Rocketman looks like an incredibly rich and detailed watch.
