"The film is as much about the incalculable weight of this mythology as it is the titular deed. It’s about the failure of fiction to console, to ever adequately prepare us for the harsh complexities and contradictions of the real world."
"If something doesn't work, Luhrmann simply plows on to the next thing. It's a man-of-the-theatre attitude. He's an old-fashioned showman: Give 'em something to look at. And make sure you reach 'em in the cheap seats!"
