nanci’s review published on Letterboxd:
There is no scene in any film that can make me feel as much happiness as the "spectacular spectacular" scene can.
It's been so long since I've seen this and I absolutely adore it so this is going to be very over dramatic. The first half of this film gives me such a strong feeling of complete happiness and joy and makes me forget that bad things are happening all around us. It cures my depression, clears my skin, makes me want to get up and sing and dance and love. And then the second half... brings back my depression, turns me into a hermit, makes me never want to speak again never mind sing. This film makes me feel everything. Thank you Baz Luhrmann, you are a genius.
