I find myself needing to make a few confessions. I know it's terribly un-masculine of me, but I have to admit I'm a sucker for a good romance. Moreover, I'm a (and I cringe when I admit this) sucker for pop music. I know! I know! At least I can say that I don't know any Celine Dion songs that I like.
Still, Moulin Rouge hit a soft spot on me. I really liked it - visually, audibly, it was stunning, and yes, I even liked the romance and the love story.
So, label me a sucker, go ahead. It's ok. I also liked Romeo + Juliet. I didn't like the stars of that movie, but I really like what Baz Luhrmann does, and he's obviously grown since then - MR was that much better. I just found out he's directing a movie version of Rent - should be interesting. I'll be sure to see that one in the theaters. I wish I had seen Moulin Rouge in the theaters. Ah, well. Next time. :)
