Co-Presented with American Cinema Editors. Anyone who decided to turn The Police's "Roxanne" into a 19th Century-set tango number must be some kind of mad genius, and that's exactly what the inimitable Baz Luhrmann did in his wondrous, utterly ingenious MOULIN ROUGE! Remixing a classic story for the MTV age, this bonkers melange of late-20th Century pop songs combined with a Belle ?poque Parisian setting features a game cast led by the enchanting Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman and sumptuous design from Catherine Martin. But, the film's MVP remains editor Jill Bilcock (Oscar-nominated for her work) who masterfully swirls Luhrmann's manic acid-tinged footage into a moving cinematic whirlwind that went on to influence countless other works, none of which matched the cinematic high of the stunning original.
