The second one needs a proper rewatch.

Romeo + Juliet

I honestly can't remember much aside from the old English gibberish.
"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It's not. The worst thing in life is ending up with people who make you feel all alone." - Lance Clayton (played by Robin Williams), World's Greatest Dad

I haven't seen most of these in years. Voted for Strictly Ballroom, but that's part nostalgia/nationalism and part the stage musical I saw last year. I think Moulin Rouge is probably better. It's certainly the most 'Baz'.

The trailer for his Netflix show looks really interesting.

As a sidenote, I worked opening night of Strictly Ballroom: The Musical in Melbourne, and Catherine Martin wore the most amazing dress with this huge amount of embroidery. Between us, she's the really talented one of the two.

Moulin Rogue 4.5/5

She was a courtesan, he was a thief. Together they escaped the underworld of Paris, but their enemies pursue. They flee, for love, life and song.
