 Haven't watched it myself but if it's anything like Baz Luhrmann's Romeo & Juliet there's so much going on visually you really have to sit back, take a breath, and then think about it. I reckon his Romeo & Juliet is probably one of the best movies I have ever experienced, and once you start to grapple with the visuals and decypher what's going on it's more than just entertainment, it really is an experience. Well worth the watch

Having always intended to read the book, but at the same time being congenitally intellectually lazy, I was pleased to see this was on telly over Christmas, so I could sit back and watch the film instead.

It's grand tale of opulence and excess belying more human motives are terrifically conveyed in typical Baz Luhrmann style...


It's one of those films that I stuggled with, and in any ordinary circumstance, I would have switched it off after the first 10 - 15 minutes, as being too messy, superficial, and too much hard work to concentrate on. And the reason is this really goes with the pimped out big budget music video thing for almost 40 minutes - quick cuts, lots of shallowness and dazzling images that are too much of an assault on the senses.

Fortunately, I was even too lazy to find the remote on this occasion, so let it go, and I'm glad I did, because as this "human" centre reveals itself in the story, it settles down, and reveals a real film there that is worth watching.

Obviously, this was intentional, in order to peel away the mask of emptiness of these characters, but I think having to go the better part of an hour to get there is asking a lot of an audience, and perhaps Baz could have eased off the gas a little earlier in order to make the point without bludgeoning my brain too much.
