MOVIE REVIEW: MOULIN ROUGE! (Baz Luhrmann, 2001)

8F003042-8E59-42C1-9DD6-E007EEE420CE

I’m definitely Toulouse-Lautrec hanging from a high beam screaming the cheesiest, yet incredibly magical line: “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” (Truth! Beauty! Freedom! And above all, Love!)

(I still can’t believe that Luhrmann was snubbed of a Director nom. To quote the hilarious Whoopi Goldberg in her Oscar 2002 opening monologue, “I guess Moulin Rouge just directed itself!”)

Rating: ★★★★★
