so Saturday Kat came down

so Saturday Kat came down & we went to see Moulin Rouge. I’d love to write an actual review, but I’m not sure I can quite wrap my brain all the way around it yet. the short version: it’s a big crazy mess. a loopy melodramatic love story, completely surrounded in visual and audial madness. I loved it. any musical that can somehow combine “vous le vous quche avec moi” (sp?!) with “smells like teen spirit” is suffused with mad genius. of course nicole kidman is lovely – I think this might be a perfect role for her: the victorian-era consumptive beauty, all that creamy ice-white skin. and who knew ewan mcgregor had a natural twinkle in his eye?
