Hit or Miss

Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge. The long abourning Nicole Kidman musical is finally on target to hit theatres (June 1) and the trailer is now online. I’m a fan of any movie that tries to resurrect the musical genre, but anacronistic music-hall renditions of “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” and “Roxanne” are a bit weird and scary. Still, the “look” of the film (at least from the trailer) brings to mind “The Matrix” set in 18th-century Paris, so it’ll be working checking out when it hits the street.

That is, if it comes to my piddly 3 screen movie theatre (which, in a bizarre pre-Oscar night blaze of culture never before seen in this town, is actually showing Traffic, Chocolat, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon all in the same weekend).
