Let me preface by saying I considerThe Great Gatsbyto be one of the greatest American novels ever written, and I never expected Baz Luhrmanns film to live up to that standard.
With that being said, Luhrmann definitely gets it, and his film is a decent adaptation, depicting Gatsbys world vividly, but tries too hard to include modernity within a facade of green screens and vibrant colors.
In case you arent aware, The Great Gatsby is the story of elusive Long Island millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his neighbor, bond salesman Nick Carraway (Tobey MaGuire).
The two meet up at one of Gatsbys illustrious parties and Gatsby persuades Carraway to set up a meet with Carraways cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan), whom was in love with Gatsby just five years prior.
The story is all opulence, parties and the attempts of one man to regain a love he once had, through the material world. Lurhmanns vision is bright and the film runs with a breakneck pace that is exhausting for the first hour.Lurhmann seems to pound the roaring part of the Roaring 20s into the audience, with sensory overload. That overload is also a message about the decades overflowing wealth, alcohol and possessions.
