Bohemian Rhapsody showing at Genesis Cinema, Mile End

Wednesday October 24

Bohemian Rhapsody

Against the odds, the notoriously troubled production – first kicked into motion almost a decade ago – finally comes to pass this week. Rumour has it that much of the saucy/sordid aspects of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury’s life have been airbrushed out (hence why Sacha Baron Cohen is said to have bailed). That’s not terribly surprising, given Freddie’s former band mates are exec producers on the film (and are still touring without him). What is said to ring true is Rami Malek’s approximation of the greatest showman of them all. Best known for TV’s Mr Robot, the 37-year-old Egyptian-American is said to nail Freddie’s gait and gander. So while we won’t see him snorting off dwarves’ heads whilst romping with a room full of sailors, we will see that unforgettable Live Aid performance re-enacted in all its glory. Altogether now… “Hammer to Fall!”
