Ep. #95-Moulin Rouge!



This week, we here at SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER!?! have a spring in our step and a song in our heart as we discuss 2001’s gonzo musical MOULIN ROUGE!, directed by the one and only Baz Luhrmann. Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman play doomed lovebirds at the titular nightclub, where the activities taking place aren’t nearly as insane as the filmmaking on display. From the seizure-inducing imagery to the pop song mash-ups, you’ll swear you downed a bottle of absinthe by minute three. But does it all still hold up 18 years later? Follow the green fairy and find out!
