An inspiring rebirth of the movie musical...

6 September 2005
  • Summary: Luhrmann's flamboyant musical 'Moulin Rouge' is a combination of Camille, La Bohème and Showgirls... The film swings easily between present and past, among so many wildly different moods: farce, tragedy, romance, satire, comedy and rock and roll...

  • Summary: I wonder if that line from the Duke "I don't care about your ridiculous dogma" was directed to Lars Von Triar. It could be, the film is full of knowing lines "He could make you a star and you're dallying with the writer!

The most original and groundbreaking movie of recent history

  • Summary: I have seen Moulin Rouge at least 25 times. I think it is the most extraordinary movie of my generation and breaks every limit set by the industry. I have heard all the traditional complaints...people didn't like the music, the editing was too swift, or it wasn't "their taste".

This is a musical for people who don't like musicals.

  • Summary: This was easily one of the best movies I've seen in years. Rarely do movies have a visual force capable of stunning you into rapt silence; and even more rare are films able to further this with a soundtrack that can move you and ensnare you as well, if not better, than the images.

I am in love with "Moulin Rouge"!

Rob, IMDb
31 August 2001
  • Summary: 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.

  • Summary: I have now seen Moulin Rouge more times than I should say and I have noticed something new and unique every time. This film is so intricate (and beautiful) that you cannot possibly absorb it all in one viewing.

One of the few movies out there worth watching several times, just because of the sheer visual and musical enchantment. **** (out of four)

Blake French (baffilmcritic@cs.com), IMDb
16 June 2001
  • Summary: MOULIN ROUGE! / (2001) **** (out of four) By Blake French: "Moulin Rouge!" revives our imagination and relives the musical era of Hollywood. The film is like an extravagant, expensive Broadway production on screen, with enough open courage, engrossing passion, and zesty energy for several motion...

A stunning, visual feast

Gouda-3, IMDb
12 June 2001
  • Summary: At the risk of sounding overly bombastic, "Moulin Rouge" is the best film I've seen all year, perhaps the best one I've seen in over a year. It is operatic in the best sense of the word, being at once massively outlandish and deeply personal.

Mostly, It's a Story About Love

jhclues, IMDb
11 June 2001
  • Summary: This is a story about life. And about the artists who congregated in Paris in 1900, living a bohemian lifestyle and giving the world the fruits of their labor, of their art, for which they would gladly bleed and die. But mostly this is a story about love.
