Preview, “The King” uses Elvis as a Metaphor for the fat, addicted redneck slob America has become

Here’s a documentary/personal essay of the “Roger & Me” variety, a cross-country trip collecting interviews about Elvis, his place in the culture, and the America his rise and fall foresaw.

Eugene Jarecki directed it, Alec Baldwin and Chuck D are in it.

And Emmy Lou Harris, and an Elvismobile — not one of his many Cadillacs, but his Rolls Royce.

Oscilloscope Labs is the releasing studio, and look for it in limited release June 22.
