Just saw Chicago. The movie. It was quite good. I like musicals. I really like Baz Luhrman's work, for example. His Moulin Rouge was great. But then I like Nicole Kidman.

Chicago's main premise is that a courtroom is a stage, which should be used to 'razzle and dazzle' a jury. That's probably as good a description as any of what goes on there. I have never quite seen the common law court system - being judged by twelve of your peers and all that - as the just way to go. I probably just like authority figures, like the omnipotent judge, too much. I guess.
