fourteen favourite shots: Moulin Rouge

I was about 14 years old when I first saw Moulin Rouge and it never really left me I guess. Just a beautiful, beautiful movie. Made even the most wretched parts of its setting look like a dream.

You’ll notice that the “Roxanne” scene features prominently here, and that’s because it’s the most electrifying musical sequence ever put to film. I will die on that hill.
