Bohemian Rhapsody
One couldn't find a more exciting material for a biographical drama than the life of Freddie Mercury, the legendary frontman of Queen. He was not only an extraordinary talent, but his stage presence and unique charisma made him an unimitable performer in the eyes of the public.
The movie draws a colorful and entertaining picture about the band and their story together, how they have reached unimaginable heights soon after they began performing at university parties and small clubs. But unfortunately the public won't get a genuine insight into the life of the protagonist, as the characters are all lacking real depth. We do see the frontman, but we don't really see the man behind. Rami Malek did an exceptionally good job learning the movements, gestures and mimics of  Freddie Mercury, but the script simply didn't put enough emphasis on the characters, so they remain superficial and remote, somehow getting lost behind the catchy music and cool stage choreographies. It is a pity, because the life of Freddie Mercury should have inspired a much deeper movie than that.
