Luhrmann has raised the level of his game, deconstructing the Hollywood musical -- a genre all but left for dead -- and reassembling it with a potency that hasn’t been seen since “Cabaret.”
80
The film dances; the heart sings.
75
It's impossible to watch this beautifully chaotic, excessive movie impassively. You'll either embrace what Luhrmann has done here or run out of the theater, holding your head.
75
You get faux feelings -- but faux of the highest, giddiest order.
70
A movie you can't readily get out of your head.
