Odd that I never saw this, as I consider myself a Baz Luhrman fan. The first half is radical flash and mayhem — wonderfully constructed, lots of fun. Mercutio is a drag queen!!! The second half is more traditional, and that works, too. Great to see Paul Sorvino, Brian Dennehy, and M. Emmet Walsh (!) in small parts. If I must point out flaws, it is as follows (and don’t yell): Clare Danes is adoreable, gorgeous, beautiful. . .but she ain’t up to snuff here. This just isn’t (or wasn’t) in her skillset. Points for trying and overall points to Luhrman for a dynamite production.
