'Moulin Rouge' Is a Silly, Campy, Wonderful Effort to Save the Movie Musical from Itself

The movie might seem oversized and unwieldy in its heedless pursuit of romantic sensation, but Luhrmann and company are speaking in cinematic language, not translating from Broadway -- and they do so with sophistication.

Moulin Rouge (2001)

She's the perfect drag queen, embodying the ruthless paradox of entertainment. She is the show that must go on and cannot.

Moulin Rouge (2001)

I imagine that at the 'real' Moulin Rouge, the thrill wasn't just a bit of nipple and a flash of panties, but the whole entertainment package, which no doubt included exuberant 'daring' new music intended to shock and titillate the sensitivity of the bourgeoisie -- kind of like rock-and-roll or punk in our times.
