Backstage at the Moulin Rouge
22 January 2002 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

The 26 minute HBO documentary is quite decent, yet it isn't exactly a must see.

It, like the film it documents, is a tad lacking in directly, with no reason why certain people are interviewed (for example why interview only Christina Aguilera instead of say Lil Kim? or Pink? and better yet why not interview all 4 of the Moulin Rouge "Girls"?).

Still, the film also plays like an extension of the "Moulin Rouge!" (2001) film, which is good. The films intra titles (like 360, etc...) are very much in the "Moulin Rouge!" (2001) style and the segway from black/white archival photos of old Moulin rouge along with the beginning click, as if we needed to enter a nickel to start the nickelodeon/zeotrope showing of the old film add to the the overall ambiance of this documentary.

Yet, the film delves into self promotion of all that is Baz at the end by showing clips of "Strictly Ballroom" (1992) and "Romeo & Juliet" (1996). Perhaps people whom want a glimpse of Leonardo D. will like this additional stuff, but why not just stick to "Moulin Rouge!" (2001).

This feature is on the "Moulin Rouge!" (2001) DVD. It is one of many good aspects about the DVD. However, some comment on the 1950 film "Moulin Rouge" or a double feature with that film also would have been neet.
