Movie of the Day – Moulin Rouge

123 minutes.

I like movies and shows where the third wall is broken a bit –  the scene at the end where Christian walks out of the show and down through audience for example.   Once, years back, the Godfathers did a production of Romeo and Juliet,  and in the scene with the ghost of Tybalt, they had the actor who had been playing Tybalt up on the wall at the top of the amptheatre behind the audience.  He just stood there with his arms folded staring down at the actors — it was great.  And it was fascinating to see the way some audiences would pick up on the actor being back there right away, and others didn’t at all — and how some audience members would notice, then it would sort of ripple across the audience.

Very fun stuff.
