WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Jamie Bitz Profile picture for Jamie Bitz

It's the movie that spurred a music mash-up phenomenon (yes show choirs, I'm looking at you). The film is filled with excess and chaos but in a way that makes it impossible to look away. Most viewers will leave wondering what in the world they just watched, but will still be thankful for the ride.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Boston Globe by Jay Carr

The film musical is at the moment an even more devitalized art form than the Broadway musical. But Moulin Rouge doesn't revive it. It only rearranges the bones.

Film.com by Peter Brunette

Consistently runs the danger of substituting cool but ultra-hyper, modern special effects for boring old human sentiment.

Miami Herald by Rene Rodriguez

It's impossible to watch this beautifully chaotic, excessive movie impassively. You'll either embrace what Luhrmann has done here or run out of the theater, holding your head.
