Moulin Rouge! (2001) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - It's grown on me. I watched it again a few weeks ago and I just loved it.
William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet (1996) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image - Same thing here. Watched both this and the Zeffirelli in the same weekend recently. They are both pretty great.
Strictly Ballroom (1992) Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image1/2

The Hybrid System

The Music Part: Emotiva XSP-1, Thiel CS 3.6, Emotiva XPA-2, Marantz SA8004, Emotiva ERC-3, SVS PB-12 Plus 2
