spoken out against current British film
, saying that it's too

out of the UK are rather formulaic. I blame Working Title and the
"Cool Britannia" thing.
to Baz Luhrmann's latest opus,
Moulin Rouge, has not been the nigh-universal acclaim the Australian press would
have us believe, with some critics dismissing it as little more than a
music video aimed at adolescents. I guess we'll have to wait to find out.
