Life is generally crummy for Buenos Aires Elvis impersonator Carlos Gutierrez (first-time actor John McInerny). His family life is a shambles, his factory job sucks – about the only good times are when, proud in a rhinestone jumpsuit, he’s onstage channeling E - belting out “An American Trilogy,” “Suspicious Minds,” or “You Were Always on My Mind.” When an accident forces him to take responsibility for his daughter Lisa Marie (sic), the story moves into father and daughter bonding territory, but it reaches deeper and becomes a character study of a man who devotes his life to reaching his dream. First time director Armando Bo (screenplay for Biutiful) has created a bluesy, heartbreaking, focused film featuring McInerny’s immensely strong central performance.

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
