Bohemian Rhapsody: Review

They say the top is lonely, in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody that saying is distributed perfectly.The movie places its main focus on lead singer Farrokh Bulsara (Freddie Mercury).

During his time of fame, It exploits his internal challenge with his sexuality. Actor Rami Malek portrays Freddie Mercury in a way no other actor could. The growth of his character was the most dramatic change throughout the whole movie.

The lead singer of Queen lived a difficult and private life. Delivering his lifestyle was a challenging obstacle for movie writers and actors.

During an emotional fraught scene in the movie, Actor Rami Malek openly admits to his on screen wife that he is bisexual. With tears rimming in her eyes she corrects him saying that he is gay. This left Queen fans wondering where the plot would spiral next.

Many labeled him as gay, some chose to ignore his queerness, and very few chose to validate his bisexuality.

Freddie Mercery never admitted his sexuality to any media throughout his life, and the story was harder to tell than many would like to admit. Members Brian May and Roger Taylor withheld information about their lead singer’s sexuality and AIDS diagnosis during interviews.

It’s upsetting to watch on screen because real life is often more bleak than fantasy. You can sense the urgency he feels to become himself.

In the scenes where Freddie is confronted with his own sexual demons, Malek manages to both unite and divide the audience in their sympathy and wonderment for the singer’s scenario. This leads to the self realization and the need for improvement.

The hatred he had for himself was stronger than his love for music at a point, which actor Malek doesn’t hold back from showing.

During the last performance it shows his devoted passion that was hidden among the lonely life of fame. The energy within the on screen crowd radiated off of the screen into the theater. It just made you feel good. Malek gave a very emotional performance almost attaching himself to mercury’s position.
