Reader Mike Sells claims to have seen Dreamgirls and says “it delivers on the level of razzle-dazzle movie-movie spectacle more than anything else this year, with lots of emotional peaks and valleys and a big tearjerking moment at the very end. The story is definitely less contained than the one in Chicago, but works very well on the level of an ensemble saga. Loved it overall.” Chicago ‘s story was “contained” in what way? Because it was mainly about shallow greedy hustlers? Is that what he means?
