Terse Movie Review – Moulin Rouge (1952)

Moulin rougeposter1952.jpg

I know John Huston has made better films — The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The African Queen jump immediately to mind — but this isn’t one of them.  I don’t care it was nominated for Best Picture, Director and Actor.  This is clearly one of the lesser-films in Huston’s oeuvre — it would be a lesser film in any oeuvre — drawn down by an annoying and braying performance by Jose Ferrer, who’s height varies wildly from scene-to0-scene and uninspired ‘decadence’.

Avoid.
