i went to see moulin rouge yesterday. i am in love with it. during most of the movie i smiled so much and so hard my face hurt. it was so much fun! when the can-can dancers at the moulin rouge twirled onto the dance floor and the tuxedoed men started in singing “smells like teen spirit,” i thought i would fall out of my chair laughing. i like baz luhrman movies. you just sit there and experience them. it’s like an amusement park ride. you just strap in and away you go. you don’t need to engage your brain, you just take it all in. moulin rouge was spectacular, spectacular!
of course i did get all swept away in the love story and the ending left me weeping in my sleep. me and the 14-year-old girl next to me cried as if our hearts were breaking. sister #4 didn’t shed a tear. she’s a damn rock, i swear.
now, i can’t wait to see it again. i have to con someone else into seeing it with me.
