MOULIN ROUGE!
2001, 20th Century Fox, 127 min, USA, Dir: Baz Luhrmann

Director Baz Luhrmann’s phantasmagorical musical has been hailed as one of the most visually inventive and wildly kinetic films in recent memory for its mixture of turn-of-the-century Parisian nightlife, late-20th-century pop music (beautifully performed in the film by lovers Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor) and astonishingly ornate production and costume design, courtesy of Oscar winner Catherine Martin. With John Leguizamo as pint-sized painter Toulouse-Lautrec.
