Baz - how low can you go?

With little else to do, I decided to take myself off to see the new sprawling epic 'Baz Luhrmann's Austria'. This Viennese whirl of a film covers a delicate period in Austria's recent history, incorporating touchy subjects such as racism, unlawful imprisonment and world domination. It features acting luminaries Romy Schneider, as Mrs Hitler, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, as Josef Fritzl.
I, for one, fail to see what all the fuss made over this film is about, with its delicate portrayal of a nation yet to apologise for its role in the Second World War.

Today's Haiku Film Review:

Moulin Rouge! (2001) -

A mess of a film!
Oscar winner perhaps, but
Don't let actors sing.
