Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody is part of the onslaught of bio pics shoved down our throats during the award season. The recreation of Queen classics are perfectly shot, choreographed, and acted.  .  You have to wait until the end of the film to witness any songs in their entirety. Bryan Singer must not have trusted audiences to stick with the full version of “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” or “Fat Bottomed Girls. Rami Malek has no trouble nailing Freddie Mercury’s essence. Despite the 135-minute length, the film seems like a check list of sexuality confusion, artistic challenges, AIDS, parental acceptance and group in fighting. So it’s a mixed bag that will thrill you during the songs and let you down as the story propels towards a less than cathartic ending.
