2001 is rapidly drawing to a close. I thought I'd bought my last dvd for the year, the wonderful Criterion Edition of Frederico Fellini's 8 1/2. A fine way to end 2001, or so I thought. But, then, that black-hearted bastard, Ron Epstein, no less, had to proclaim Moulin Rouge the best dvd of the year. Damn him, damn him to hell. How can I not buy the best dvd of the year as a self-respecting film afficianado. So Moulin Rouge is my last, absolutely last, no doubt in my mind, postively final, I've never been so sure of anything in my life, dvd purchase for the year.
