William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
This Shakespeare rendition is not so much a reconceptualization as a recontextualization of the 400-year-old play. This Romeo + Juliet is a rich visual feast, besotted with the fervor of its acrobatic camerawork and kinetic staging and its mind-bending aggregation of unrelated but resonant fragments of 20th century iconography. It is a Shakespearean work thoroughly conceived for the screen. DiCaprio and Danes again prove that they are two of the best actors of their generation. And William Shakespeare has once more demonstrated that he is a storyteller for all time.
"...Directed by: Baz Luhrmann. Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, Brian Dennehy, John..."

The Great Gatsby
A great American novel does not always a great movie make, but Baz Lurhmann, a director of delirious excess, certainly seems an apt fit for the Roaring Twenties.

Moulin Rouge
This musical sucks you in with its own brand of willful illogic and breathtaking visuals. Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, a penniless poet falls madly in love with a nightclub's star performer, a chanteuse-cum-courtesan who has a heart of gold and is an incipient consumptive. The music is a combination of restructured modern pop tunes manhandled into clever new forms.

Shakespeare in Love
It's flighty, improbable stuff, meant not to be a historical restorative but a modern romantic tribute to the scribe whose words have launched a million sonnets.
