|The Last Elvis
A film by Armando Bo
92 minutes, color, Spanish w/ English subtitles, 2012
Most evenings in Buenos Aires, "Elvis" Gutiérrez is a star - his singing and stage presence bring back to life the King of Rock and Roll in all his glory. By day, though, Gutiérrez slaves away at a dead-end factory job and endures the scorn of his ex-wife; only his young daughter, Lisa Marie, brings any joy outside of his Elvis tribute gigs. Feeling more connected to his stage persona than to the world around him, Gutiérrez retreats from reality until a tragic accident forces him to grapple with his real-world responsibilities.

"A knockout, riveting performance! John McInerney is utterly compelling."
"One of the 10 Best Music Films at Sundance! An emotion-laden and intense journey."
"With the help of beautiful cinematography and deft camerawork, the film dares the borderlines of delusion and reality to be re-imagined into one man's definition of them."
"John McInerney's performance is incredible. He has a great voice, but also just the way he moves and carries himself is expressive. This is a movie that's going to stay with me for a long time." -Pop Culture Beast
