A landmark musical movie -- controversial, mercurial, even cheeky. It's the kind of film that wildly divides audiences and critics -- people tend to either love or hate it. I loved it.

The movie is all color and music, sound and motion, kinetic energy, broad strokes, operatic excess.

An audacious, snappy visual and emotional feast of dishes both familiar and fresh. It's the first really good movie of 2001.
