4 out of 5. Speaking of musicals, Baz Luhrmann's MOULIN ROUGE! knocked my socks off when it first came out over decade ago. The fantasy world built by him and the two leads was quite mesmerizing. I really dig high-production values used in small ways. His earlier film STRICTLY BALLROOM was another favorite of mine. But this film showed a sense of style, composition and the ability to make a fun film. Also: JIM BROADBENT whom I cannot get enough of.
