The quest for one man's identity on the lower end of the Hollywood food chain.
28 November 1998 | by chadthorSee all my reviews

A minor masterpiece of borderline genius. Duane Whitaker's play comes to cinematic fulfillment in EDDIE PRESLEY, a paegn to Hollywood Bottom Feeders. Loaded with quiet power and insight, EP is the story of a Presely impersonator with a wounded psyche, unflinching in his quest to keep the King's spirit alive. He bets it all on one night of glory, a headlining spot at dingy Tinseltown dive. He ends up losing his girlfriend, his job, his chance, but not his pride, as he engages in a cathartic Lenny

bruce-esque confession that celebrates the poetry of the angles while exorcising his own demons. A must for anyone whoever spit in the face of certain demise.
