3 – ROMEO + JULIET by Baz Luhrmann (1996) / Having officially been elevated to the role of the dreamy-looking bad boy in The Basketball Diaries, Romeo + Juliet was arguably the film in which he became the romantic teen idol. Luhrmann’s take on the Shakespearean play is ingenious or obnoxious, according to one’s point of view.
