One of the great movie spectacles of this generation, an undertaking of vast scope made all the more fascinating by how it transforms commonplace undercurrents into rich sensations for every frame it possesses the screen.
Baz Luhrmann's absinthe-dripped extravagance becomes contagious. Operating with the precision and crazy adornments of a cuckoo clock, what could've been a migraine becomes a film so visceral and enchanting that even the man in the moon sings out.
