Latest Movie Review
Such Great Heights!
While I've never been to Broadway to see a play on the stage, this movie makes me want to experience the story in its original format. Full disclosure, I like musicals a great deal, especially one with fantastic dance numbers (this movie has almost a dozen), which made this movie a wonderful treat. It's a tremendous adaptation. Excellent songs, exquisite set pieces, wonderful acting, engaging story. However, speaking critically as someone who has seen a variety of musicals, tonally the presentation feels like it's stuck in manic mode with little unsung dialogue and constant bombardment of large set pieces. It's a little "too much of a good thing" syndrome, and you wonder if the film on the whole (not the play) might benefit …
