Moulin Rouge

I just caught Moulin Rouge. It was quite good although sometimes difficult to watch - almost stomach turning. I've never associated bloomers with roller coaster rides before...

Saw it last night. Completely agree with the roller coaster thing.

It was a genre we haven't seen in quite a while, a production musical. Sort of Singing in the Rain[Wiki] updated for Sesame Street / MTV editing sensibilities.

While I was entertained, and think that the visual effects crew deserves a whole lot of recognition, I'm not sure it's a movie I need to see twice. I do think that there's a lot in there for film buffs to learn about how audiences have changed stylistically. 20 years ago I doubt you could have founda theatre-full of people who could've kept up with that.
