I have to say, this is one of my favorite films of all time. It's nearly a decade old, at this point, but it still kicks ass. You should go watch it. Now. Also, watch Moulin Rouge, it kicks ass, as well. I'm gonna have to watch Strictly Ballroom, though, before deciding that Baz Luhrmann is a God among Directors. He has an incredible visual style, and bizarre ideas for films that turn out to be incredible. I ramble. I shall stop before this merits an lj-cut.
  • I intended to see Strictly Ballroom when it came out but with everything else going on I forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me. I agree with you on the other two. I especially enjoy Moulin Rouge and it's use of old and not so old song lyrics; quite ingenious.
  • So I sent John out to rent Strictly Ballroom tonight. You would have thought I'd asked him to go pick up feminine hygiene products or something. But being the indulgent husband that he is, he did it. About halfway through it the phone rang and he couldn't get out of there fast enough. Funny how that call lasted until the credit music started. I, on the other hand, liked it a lot. It was glitzy and pretty to look at on the surface, as was Moulin Rouge, yet there was so much more beneath the surface. This guy Baz has one amazing sense of humor.
