Moulin Rouge! (2001) short review


Okay, don’t hit me — I know everyone loved this movie, but I have to say I would have liked it a whole lot better if it had stopped the lightning-fast seizure-inducing editing for ONE SECOND so I could look at the costumes (which were terribly periodESQUE — the only ones I really liked were Nicole Kidman’s Indian-inspired show costumes).  It just hit me over the head with its hammer and didn’t stop until the end.
