Music Monday: Moulin Rouge!

Over the weekend I finally managed to watch Moulin Rouge!, after owning the DVD for a good couple of years (long story) and spent today listening to the soundtrack. I was prepared for an amped-up Traviata – I’m not that out of the loop – but not for how many tissues I’d end up needing, and the music was a big part of that. Love him or hate him, there’s no one like Baz Luhrmann. MTV’s golden boy definitely knows how to direct in a way that maximises the punch of both image and music. The result is almost always over the top, but addictive. The zany covers are what I enjoy most about his music, and although there’s the odd ridiculous moment (‘Like A Virgin’ made me chortle), there’s a lot to love for years to come here.
