for my elective non-religions course, theater in the age of film and television, we watched moulin rouge for our first movie. i've always loved this movie, know the songs (elephant love medley, anyone?), and discussing it in a somewhat sophisticated capacity only affirmed this. it seamlessly transfers between film and theater styles, and is just fully unapologetic in its ridiculousness. nowhere does it stop to acknowledge its insanity - you're taken along for baz luhrmann's entire ride as though it is complete bizarre reality. adore adore.
