This documentary, spread over really generous two DVD set, covers almost all aspects of this private face of King: it has nice introduction from journalist Sander Vanocur and tons of interviews with people who knew him back than, including singers and musicians who worked with him closely in studio and concerts, people who are still visibly fascinated with him after all these years and who all claim that off-stage Presley was often funny, sensitive, generous and spiritual person who knew Gospel music much better than anybody around and who, with all his mega-stardom was excited as a kid to sing together with his Gospel idol J.D.Sumner. Interesting idea: because of his phenomenal success, he was unable to attend church services (and basically to live normal civilian life) so being so cut off from reality, he used Gospel music as his own personal way of communication with God. Watching him on a concert stages, completely lost in this music (and giving generous spotlight to his backing musicians who sometimes sang solo without him) and truly enjoying Gospel, I have no doubts this is where his heart was.
