Romeo + Juliet

Romeo + Juliet

The most 90s possible thing. This could not exist today and that's part of why it's so charming. It's so energetic, and so balls to the wall, and every weird risk and theatrical sleight of hand it attempts just works perfectly. It's so close to veering right off the rails at any moment, but some weird alchemy is at play here that suspends every jittery moment in a magic that Baz Luhrmann has never recaptured even a fraction of.
