I could go on why I enjoyed this film – heck, I reviewed this 3 times on Letterbox!
But the one simple word I can best describe Moulin Rouge, is poignant. This film give a poignant feeling whenever I get the chance to see this it. The glits, the glamour, the music & the story. This is the perfect love story.
Ewan McGreggor and Nicole Kidman were terrific.
I recommend this film as a Valentine’s treat!
Moulin Rouge has many things to like about it, but comes off as inconsistent at times.
All of the actors were top notch. I believe it was Nicole Kidman’s best performance of her career. Ewan
McGregor usually doesn’t add a lot of depth to his characters, but in this movie it was ample. Jim Broadbent was charismatic and Richard Roxburgh was a very convincing pervert, right down to his posture. I liked how well they developed each of these characters. The rest of the actors were also excellent, but the story didn’t lend much depth to their character, and they simply came off as a backdrop or environment for the main four, often becoming a writers convenience or becoming a set of eyes we could see through from the outside looking in.
There were so many parts I enjoyed about this movie, more particularly the segments where Kidman and McGregor’s relationship was explored. This made for a great second act of the movie. The first and third act I felt suffered from Baz Luhrmann’s rapid, almost epileptic, editing style. His style is not not for everyone, but particularly in this movie, it didn’t allow for much depth of the movie in the first and third act and came off as flashy and showy. This created pacing issues that I felt if he had slowed down and focused more on the characters instead of fitting as many shots into the move that he could, the story would have flowed a lot better.
The other major inconsistency of the movie was the theme it was building towards, and the theme it ultimately landed on. Throughout the entire movie, they are building a theme of faith in love no matter what the outcome, but the last minute and a half of the movie turns it into a tragedy that I felt was unwarranted and unearned. This would have been a palpable ending if the movie showed the characters doubting that maybe love wasn’t enough, and then a tragedy strikes that proves the point. But instead we have the ending segment that shows us that all this guy’s belief in love was absolutely for not, and that we are left to assume he must have been faking his belief the entire time, because it sure didn’t seem like enough for him. This isn’t about always getting a happy ending, it’s about not getting an ending that was a cheap and quick way to evoke a particular emotion in the audience without really building into. It felt rushed, and again, unearned. (And I’m not talking about the actual event, but more about how the event affected the character.)
Otherwise, I really wanted to enjoy this movie more than I did. An excellent second act with outstanding performances and likable characters, but with the pacing issues and inconsistencies in building a movie that naturally flowed from one idea to the next keeps me from rating it higher. All in all, though, a fairly enjoyable and rewatch able film nonetheless.
I am in love with “Moulin Rouge”!
I have not ever felt for a movie the way I do about “Moulin Rouge.” It is not just a movie…it is a cinematic experience the likes of which I have never before seen. The story, the music, the acting, the visual imagery strikes emotion in me I never before thought possible from a film. It is without a doubt the most brilliant piece of cinematic art I have ever seen. It is dizzy, maddening, beautiful, and heartbreaking! The music is rapturous, and Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman’s voices compliment each other and the story perfectly. This movie takes its story to a mythic level and surrounds these two star-crossed lovers with music and imagery that simply will take your breath away. The story is grand, huge, and operatic, as is the music. The brilliant score skillfully weaves many modern, popular songs, and rescores them as the libretto to this grand opera. There are some images in this film unlike anything you have ever seen. And the performances are absolutely incredible, particularly Nicole Kidman’s. I truly felt for these two people, and truly felt that they were in love. My heart broke into a million pieces for them every time I saw this movie, and I’ve seen it 8 times. It’s an absolutely breathtaking, visionary, masterpiece that did not get the credit it deserved by American critics, who seem to complain that every movie is the same. Yet when an original, daring, shocking film like this comes along, they don’t know what to do with it. But then again, this really is not just a film. No mere film could strike me the way this one has, in a way that reaches to the very fibres of my being in a way only “The Wizard of Oz” ever has before. Yes, the story is sad, but what a journey it takes you on! A journey I will be sure to repeat over and over and over again.
Get ready for a spectacular journey…
If you’re in love, this is the ultimate film for you. This is an emotional ride, not the kind you should watch with frowned foreheads trying to analyse it; but the kind you should watch with a light heart and an open mind. The whole film feels exactly like how the world looks when you’re in love – everything’s so dream-like, fabulous, spectacular, emotional.
It’s just utterly entertaining! It’s touching at one time, funny at another….
Firstly, the music is GREAT – there are the likes of David Bowie, Rufus Wainwright, Beck, Alka Yagnik… even just listening to the soundtrack CD alone is an ultimate emotional ride enough. Visually, the cinematography, costumes, sets, and choreography are just stunning. They work great as a whole and resulting in a dramatic eye candy. The plot, although simple, WORKS.
So sit back, dim your lights, unplug your phones – and get ready for a fantastical, romantic ‘dream’ that is Moulin Rouge.
