– Rocketman –
Rocketman is an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard.
While in rehab, a middle-aged Elton John (Taron Egerton) recalls how he went from being a shy boy from Pinner to one of the most popular recording artists in history – via a wild, unmoderated journey of drugs, drink, sex, and music.
Rocketman hits all the key notes: his connection with Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell) in the late 1960s and the early seeds of their enduring collaboration and friendship; the development of his stage name and trademark style; and his star-making performance at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.

Solid history, fine cinema. Downfall is gripping, moving, and, in the end, profoundly horrifying…………
Most dramatic versions of the fall of Berlin and the simultaneous events within Hitler’s bunker end with the suicides of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun. But Oliver Hirschbiegel’s impressive epic is notable for soldiering on grimly after the main character has left the stage, presenting the complete collapse of the Third Reich…………
At the centre of it all is Bruno Ganz, easily one of the screen’s great Hitlers.
Oliver Hirschbiegel’s film has been criticised for “humanising” Hitler. It does precisely this – and makes him seem, in consequence, far more grotesque and sulphurous than any of the dozens of picturesque newsreel documentaries
Common Sense Media
Downfall is a fascinating, complicated look at Hitler’s last days that offers an atypical perspective for a story that feels otherwise well-documented.
an illuminating, thoughtful and detailed account of Hitler’s last days…….an unflinching, hard, relentlessly honest movie that refuses to ask questions that have easy answers. It is also brilliantly acted, written and focused…
the picture does show Hitler as incontrovertibly human, which is why it is disturbing as well as magnificent.
