Our dear Jacob was honestly the best thing in Priscilla

I did enjoy the movie though. It was an interesting look into their life from Priscilla’s POV. It’s even more impressive when you learn it was made on a small budget and filmed completely in 30 days.

Jacob is truly just remarkable.

[quote] Jacob is truly just remarkable.

Unfortunately his objectionable black abdomen mole is remarkable in an entirely undesirable manner.

It’s not a mole. It’s a birth mark.

Sofia Coppola was pleased with his performance, but not his on-set flatulence, which reached a tipping point when several crew members collectively filed a grievance with the union.

At first Elordi claimed a medical condition, but the man tasked with taking the garbage out of his trailer discovered a bar fridge stuffed with Brussel sprouts, which the actor steamed by the dozen, with the intent, according to wags, of inducing a noxious wind that would stretch for hours. “It’s a sexual thing,” Elordi is said to have admitted to repulsed co-star Cailee Spaeny. “Don’t be so sex-negative.”

You can tell Soffia loves Jacob and he loves her. He’s an angel.

It was AWFUL! THE MOST interminable, sluggish, dull-witted, boring, and superficial movie in recent memory! Absolutely nothing transpires for about the first 40 minutes.

And as for your Dear Boy, all he did was smoke incessantly a thin stogie and begin EVERY SENTENCE, I KID YOU NOT, with a Tourette's-like "Well, I-I-I-I-I......"! THIS was supposed to be Jacob's "superior to Austin's" Elvis voice?! GMAFB.

As for Cailee Spaeny: If Sofia WANTED to present Priscilla as a vapid, incurious, expressionless, immature, insipid, weak, impressionable, malleable Tabula Rasa, she and the blank-faced Spaeny admirably succeeded.

"Priscilla" was made in a rush, and its characterizations and lack of depth show it.

The LSD scene is risible enough for the price of admission, though.

R10 lmao. No. It was beautiful and art.

by Anonymousreply 11December 3, 2023 7:55 PM

^! The stogie was not originally planned, but Coppola improvised it to cover up Elordi’s incessant, room-clearing farts.

Otherwise, the other actors in those scenes could present no face other than one etched in outright revulsion.

I liked the movie and thought he was great. I didn't realize who the actor was until later, and I put the face to dozens of DL threads started by deranged fangirls.

Wow, this was a mess. The main guy's performance was cringe-worthy. Yikes - this will be a short career.

R11, I'm lmao at your execrable taste. There is no way, none, that you weren't utterly BORED in the first half-hour minimum.

Art??! Where? In the scenes directly lifted from "Elvis" but transposed to a different moment or place (touch football; baby waving to Daddy E; wedding poses; kiss as depicted on official posters; chair-throwing; Cilla asking EP about starlets [Natalie Wood in "Elvis," Ann-Margret and another in "Priscilla"]; gatherings in Graceland's living room; e.g.)?

You have no conception of the true art---symbolism, imagery, film allusions (e.g., twice an homage to "Strangers On a Train"), the use of color and movement, etc.---by Baz Luhrmann.

"Felix" means "happy." "Oliver" stems from "elf." FWIW.

The woman playing Priscilla was so horribly miscast it ruined the movie. Odd, given it's based on her memoir.

I liked Elordi's Elvis much more than Austin Butler's.

by Anonymousreply 22December 15, 2023 7:48 PM

Austin Butler was 10x better

Cut the drama, I have it, is it worth watching? Does he present hole? Shirtless.

Does he present mole?

by Anonymousreply 26December 15, 2023 11:44 PM

Watching now. Jacob is surprisingly good. I’d say he and Butler are about equal for different reasons, or for playing slightly different sides of Elvis. I think they needed a different Priscilla. I realize she was a teenager at the time, but this actress seems a bit juvenile. Having someone a bit taller would have been a better match for Jacob.

by Anonymousreply 27December 16, 2023 3:52 PM

“Juvenile”… she was playing a 14 year old…

by Anonymousreply 28December 16, 2023 3:56 PM

Yeah, but she was 22 when Lisa Marie was born, and the actress still looked 14.

by Anonymousreply 29December 16, 2023 3:59 PM

She had a young face but they definitely made her look older as the film went on and she spoke different and grew into her own.

by Anonymousreply 30December 16, 2023 4:01 PM

Maybe it’s because the actress is so petite. Priscilla is 5’4”, which isn’t really tall, but this actress is definitely shorter than that so seems like a girl playing dress up. I just don’t think she was the greatest casting choice. But whatever. The movie is still good.

by Anonymousreply 31December 16, 2023 4:09 PM

She definitely looked more mature after having the baby. They didn’t keep her looking 14.

R22, Maybe that's because Jacob had almost nothing to do as Elvis except stand, smoke stogies, smooch, and smile, and literally copy Austin in the touch football, wedding, and chair-tossing scenes.

No aging; no singing; no interacting with parents (no grief for Mama), manager, fellow musical artists, notably Black, or audience; basically having no career (other than when mentioned by Priscilla regarding Elvis's Hollywood flings, for which Sofia merely switched out "Natalie Wood" in "Elvis" for "Ann-Margret" in "Priscilla")!

Yeah, Elordi was better. Sure, Jan.

R37 it’s a small indie flick. It was cheap to make. It is considered a success. And in case you’re out of the loop, most films didn’t do great this year.
