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
