Great Gatsby, The


USA 2013, 143 minutes
Dir. Baz Luhrmann
Genres: Drama

Topics: Period 1920s.


Synopsis: Baz Luhrmann directs F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel of Jazz Age decadence as a full-blown Hollywood spectacle, with Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular gent.

“A gargantuan hunk of over-art-directed kitsch, but it makes for a grandiose, colorful, pleasure-drenched night at the movies.”~Slate

Aroview: Noisy, impetuous, boisterous, the film suffers from Luhrman’s usual ADHD direction. It’s as if he can’t bring himself to just let the camera be?—?we’re always moving and everything in front of the camera is always moving. There’s no chance for the emotional content to brew?—?Baz has to keep stirring. ~ Dan Slevin
