Moulin Rouge (2001)

Director Baz Luhrmann (Strictly Ballroom and Romeo + Juliet) sets out to dazzle with this stunning musical, and he accomplishes just that. Ewan McGregor stars as a penniless writer who falls for a glamorous courtesan (Nicole Kidman), who is in turn engaged to a sexless and selfish Duke (Richard Roxburgh). When McGregor and Kidman sing classic FM radio hits (like "Heroes" and "Silly Love Songs") to each other, the film soars; the passion is palpable. But Moulin Rouge also counts on stale plot devices like the boring "quick-hide-behind-the-bed" bedroom farce scene. Yet a sense of timelessness and irony-free romance make this a winner. read more...

Great Expectations (1998)

Alfonso Cuaron updates Dickens to the 1990s with lots of gorgeous color and vivid eroticism. Ethan Hawke stars as "Finn" (not "Pip"), who is an artist this time out. Miss Havisham is now Ms. Dinsmoor (Anne Bancroft), who invites young Finn over to amuse her and dance with the beautiful young Estella. Robert De Niro is the escaped convict who surprises the youngster in the opening scenes (he leaps out of a Florida stream, rather than appearing in a graveyard). Finn's guardian Joe (Chris Cooper) is now a fisherman, rather than a blacksmith. And on and on. read more...

Romeo and Juliet (2013)

To put it plainly, Carlo Carlei's version of Romeo and Juliet is the worst Shakespeare movie adaptation I've ever seen. Admittedly I've not seen all of them, but I've seen more than twenty, and this one is the worst. It did not help at all that Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) adapted the screenplay. read more...

French Cancan (1954)

The colorful forerunner to Moulin Rouge, Jean Renoir's French Cancan tells a romantic story of the famous club's origins. Jean Gabin stars as an aging showman who discovers a beautiful little laundress (Françoise Arnoul) and teaches her to dance for the stage. She falls in love with him, but, alas, he's not hers to have. In the meantime, a wealthy prince and a modest baker also fall for her. This is lighter than usual fare for Renoir, but his usual gracefulness is ever-present and he adds a distinct human center to the color and dazzle. read more...

Passengers (2016)

Morten Tyldum's Passengers takes a rather troublesome, one-way concept and fleshes it out with plenty of emotional anguish and a happy ending. The idea is that Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) is on board a spaceship that is supposed to travel to a new planet over the course of 120 years. Along with his fellow passengers, Jim is in a sleep pod, designed to wake everyone up when they get close. Unfortunately, Jim's pod malfunctions, and he wakes up some 90 years too early; he'll never live to the end of the trip, and he's unbearably alone. He falls for Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence), asleep in her pod, and after much time agonizing over the decision, he wakes her up and tells her that her pod failed as well. Of course, it's only a matter of time before she finds out the truth and gets mad at him for, essentially, dooming her. But in the meantime, the movie uses its many space-age white rooms and corridors, and the skills and raw appeal of its two stars, to create a believable relationship. The third act ramps things up as the ship begins to malfunction and our heroes must save everyone on board. Michael Sheen provides welcome respite as a friendly robot bartender. The film received Oscar nominations for Thomas Newman 's score, and for the production design. read more...
