A magical musical fantasy gone wild
I had been warned about Moulin Rouge! by my friends a few years ago when they saw it in the theaters.

"So, this is what an acid trip must feel like!" was the exact quote...

I beg to differ...

Moulin Rouge! was a fantastic film in my eyes. Yes, it was VERY different and definately stuck out in the pool of films that came out in 2001.

I applaud Baz Lurhman for his effort to create a magical musical that involves comedy, music, and a beautiful romance.

Yes, this film was over the top but that is the point... it is not meant to be realistic... but entertaining. The colors, the music, the dancing, the sets... all of it are meant to bring the audience on a magical cinematic journey.

Not every film is meant to please everyone. But for those who love musicals this is a must see. Nicole Kidman, Ewan McGregor, John Leguizamo, and Jim Broadbent give amazing performances... it is a shame though that Ewan and John were not nominated for Oscars for their roles.

This film is absolutely thrilling. I give it a 10/10.
