Gosh, how did Enter the Void spray you then?
I have finally experienced the cinematic equivalent of getting a load shot on your face with every frame.
Okay, this one was really good. I mean, if your eyes can survive the 40 shots/second editing. To watch for the Tango scene.
I know this movie has a lot of fans and there is certainly much to admire in this movie, but I really don't like this movie at all. It is a perfect example of post-modernism done right, I'll give it that much; but in a way that is my main gripe with the movie. I didn't like how it wasn't accurate to the period in which it was set. Also, to me, the songs were meh. Overall, I don't hate it; but I don't it is good
Precocious pep and pop: this smash n’ grab raid on musical form tries to have its over-iced cake and eat it. It has a certain energy but must it be so frenetically delivered? The result is a series of showy explosions in a vacuum with little to hold attention other than bounce. Art direction is everything here, but it reduces the performances to being too-small cogs in a lumbering mechanism of forced jollity.
It casts a spell, no question. But its just SO manic, as if afraid that slowing down for a second would expose how empty it all is. Not all viewers have a 3-second attention span, Mr Luhrmann.
It's like my guilty pleasure. I just love all the costumes and Ewan Mcgregor is like a god.
By far one of the most fantastical, craziest, most lovestruck movie I've ever seen. Baz Luhrmann is either crazy or a genius, or both, but the movie is brilliant. Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman give brilliant performances, Jim Broadbent hams it up in some very silly facial hair, and the songs are perfect. Pity Luhrmann's Australia wasn't quite up to snuff.
I liked this movie despite the overly campy choice of reworking modern songs to fit the theme. I think that was really my one complaint. Other than that, I quite liked the overblown charm and gaudy costumes. The doomed love story is trite, its true, but here, it is told with such enthusiasm, I couldn't help but fall right in.
My friend and I saw this in theaters, we both wanted to leave about 15 minutes in, except that we assumed that the other was enraptured in it, so neither of us wanted to offend the other leading to our watching the entire thing then throwing our hands up in disgust as we walked out.
Vistosa (pero no confundir con deslumbrante) pelicula musical ambientada en el famoso antro parisino de finales del siglo XIX. Se deja ver,solo si se encuentra uno con el animo condescendiente adecuado. Aunque llamativa en lo que a la ambientaciòn se refiere,todo el chiste visual de la cinta se halla resumido en el video-clip protagonizado por Christina Aguilera y Pink, entre otras putitas que tambien salen cantando.
