Moulin Rouge!

Moulin Rouge! ★★★½

Hyperactive, audacious and definitely refreshing. Luhrmann outdid himself in his failed attempt to adapt Romeo & Juliet. Kidman is a charm to see and McGregor's preposterous attempt to sing increase the level of hilarity. It is impossible, however, to keep pointing the finger towards Hollywood's melodramatic stamps and to point out towards the constant pace interruptions. It is way too dependent on its landmark visuals, just like Avatar is way too dependent on its "landmark" CGI. Yet, my bet would be that the director cannot surpass this, so let's have fun with his finest and that's it.

75/100
