Moulin Rouge

Imagine a 10-hour acid trip condensed into two hours. Now turn the volume up to 11. Got it? Well, you're not even close to how excessive Moulin Rouge is. This tale of a young bohemian wannabe in fin-de-siècle Paris is all noise, flash and pop music medleys. The dialogue is glommed together from a variety of top-40 hits, the costumes are so dazzling that they'd hurt Stevie Wonder's eyes, and the sets look like they're going to explode from being over-gilded. If you've been in a coma for a while, this might be just the thing to wake you up. Of course, after a few minutes of it you'll just want to go back to peaceful oblivion. Luckily, Nicole Kidman's wooden acting provides a bit of relief from this otherwise over-lively production. Also starring Ewan McGregor and John Leguizamo, who somehow manages to be even more annoying than this film itself.
