039.jpgFlickhead's niece prodded him into placing Moulin Rouge at the top of his Netflix cue with the words, "it's the greatest movie musical of all time" (exclamation mark implied). Opon watching it for himself, Flickhead bears compelling witness at to why Baz Lurhman's decony frieght train does not even come close to that status. Not only is it a "film void of concentration", but in "deriving its dramatic nuance from Looney Toons and the Road Runner", it provides nothing worthy of emotional identification. He fears that his problems with the film "run dangerously close to Old Fogeyism", but still - we applaud him for taking familial film-watching hyperbole to task.
