My favorite movies: Strictly Ballroom
Just saw Strictly Ballroom again. Afterward, Emma said, "It's the best arts movie and the best sports movie ever." IMDB only gives it 7.3 out of 10, but Rotten Tomatoes rates it at 95%, which seems about right to me. Baz Luhrman's one of those great directors who can create an artificial world that's emotionally real, and this is my favorite movie of his. Though I think we'll be rewatching Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet sometime soon.
