    Had never seen this until recently, and it hasn't aged much at all. Brilliantly staged, with dazzling performances - I had never quite "gotten" why Catherine Zeta-Jones was such a big name until I saw this movie, and the way she just shines. Some of the stage-to-film adaptations could have been done in more interesting ways, but for the most part it utilizes the medium excellently. Also, it contains some great thematic content regarding the meaning of celebrity and fame - surprisingly, it's thematically similar to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, another impressive movie. 3 years 9 months ago

    In an alternate universe Rob Marshall and Baz Luhrmann would be filmmaking twins considering the style, mise en scene, dark musicals, burlesque costumes, etc...
    Just think about it...leaving out of course the fact that Marshall's films are less theatrical considering how dramatic Lurhmann's are.
