The 2018 film, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a thrilling biopic about the iconic band, Queen, is a juggernaut of emotion, as electrifying as the vocals in “We Will Rock You,” and as mournful as the lyrics of “Love of My Life.” Queen is composed of vocalist Freddie Mercury, bassist John Deacon, drummer Roger Taylor, and guitarist Brian May. The band was formed in London and was signed by Neptune Records in 1970.

The unique way Queen created songs revolved around the collaboration of ideas according to the situation or the location the band was at. In 1975, the band released their breakout album, “A Night at the Opera,” featuring the popular song “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The film focuses on the band’s rise to stardom primarily through the eyes of Freddie Mercury, the lead vocalist who succumbed to the addictive effects of fame. After Queen’s separation, Freddie began to slowly become ill. He was finally informed that he had been diagnosed with AIDS, changing his perspective on life instantly.

Overall, the film was very rousing; the vignettes of Queen performing were extremely powerful. Rami Malek flawlessly conveyed the rockstar’s flamboyant, humorous nature in his early years of fame, while portraying Mercury’s struggle with his sexuality and his AIDS diagnosis in a manner that is truly heartbreaking. The film reached its climax at the 1985 Live Aid concert where Queen famously performed. Despite not having performed with Queen for several years, Mercury belted out the anthems and ballads that define his career in an emotional montage. Even today, people all around the world listen to Queen’s unforgettable songs. To the end, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is an exhilarating tale of love and loss, a true testament to the band that belonged to everyone.
