I just watched Moulin Rouge again. The first time I saw it years ago i hated it so much. But this time it wasn't so bad really.
I'm not a fan of Baz Luhrmans directorial style but i admit he's good at what he does, and is a talented director.
I hated his Romeo and Juliet movie, and the style he made it in, but i did love his use of symbolism and his visual technique in it, and in Moulin Rouge. My problem with Romeo and Juliet was that it was just completely stupid and unrealistic in parts. Same thing for Moulin Rouge but i liked that a lot better than Romeo and Juliet.
I must say he is a weird yet creative director though.
