Product Description

Baz Luhrmann writes, directs and produces this adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. Set in the 1920s, the story follows aspiring writer Nick Carraway (Maguire) as he moves to New York and becomes intrigued by his neighbour Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio)'s lavish lifestyle and mysterious past. As Nick finds himself caught up in the world of the wealthy, he witnesses romantic entanglement and betrayal. Gatsby's true nature is slowly exposed and his involvement with old flame Daisy Buchanan (Mulligan) ultimately leads to tragedy. The soundtrack was overseen by Jay-Z and features music from, amongst others, Beyoncé, André 3000, Will.i.am, Lana Del Rey and Florence and the Machine, as well as Jay-Z himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast for the eyes! 24 Jun 2013
By Lola
Format:Blu-ray
Firstly, please do not let the title of the review fool you - Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" is not just a visually stunning production, it is a great piece of cinematography, wonderfully adapted script and first class acting by the leading cast as well as all the extras. Mr Luhrmann's is one maverick of director, who never shied from over the top productions, and together with great (truly fatastic!) acting by Leonardo DiCaprio and the amazing soundtrack recorded by the most famous names in the contemporary pop - this is a miracle recipe for the greatest Gatsby!

"The Great Gatsby" is visually striking, which is no more and no less that we've come to expect from a Baz Lurhmann's film. Lurhmann never held back from producing and directing stunning works of art. But, compared to his previous works (perhaps with the exception of Romeo + Juliet [DVD] [1996]), which were beautiful and entertaining, but somewhat lacking depth, "The Great Gatsby" has all the important components of a great film.

Lurhmann's attention to detail is admirable, the Scott Fitzgerald's book is read through the cinematography, the director is faithful to the writer's work. Baz Lurhmann is truly pushing the envelope in portraying the overblown madness of the twenties' glamorous living. You can feel the craziness, you experience the insanity, the hysterics, you are living for the day. But beyond its themes of wealth and craziness and obsessing on living for the moment, "The Great Gatsby" is a wonderful, beautiful and tragic love story. It's a twisted romance. It's an instant classic.

DiCaprio is amazing as Gatsby. He is charismatic and charming and dark and complex and so in love with Daisy.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent tale 9 Sep 2013
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The Great Gatsby is the tale of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio - The Departed) a war veteran with a colourful and incredible past. With the high society in the Long-island towns West Egg & East Egg, Gatsby throws parties of the highest-order impressing all of the locals with his Gothic mansion, art-deco interior and lavish spending on entertainment. But as Gatsby leans on newcomer writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire - Spider-Man) and confides in him, it becomes clear to Nick that not even all the money & respect in the world can satiate Gatsby as he hungers after married Daisy (Carey Mulligan - Drive) - will Gatsby get what he wants and at what cost?

The Great Gatsby is a grandiose affair, the styling of the 1920's lifted straight from the pages of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel of the same name. Resultantly, we have huge set pieces of the lavish parties and splendiferous surrounds of the Gatsby residence. What follows is more a monologue of Nick Carraway lamenting Gatsby's indifference to anything but Daisy, almost as if his world exists only to please her and the extent that he will go to have her. Ultimately, TGG is a fantastically well filmed affair, credit to Baz Luhrman (director of other grand show-pieces such as Moulin Rouge) lasting just over 140 mins. The whole ethos of the film reinforced with the noticeable but not unlikeable CGI usage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. Not as bad as it could have been 25 April 2014
Format:DVD
I love the 1920s - it has to be my favourite era in art and design and film, if not in literature. I count Pandora's Box (Louise Brooks) and "People on Sunday" among my favourite films. So I was very excited when I heard about a new film of Gatsby, having been disappointed by the very dull Redford film.

This film is not dull. In watching it I am definitely not bored. The film is fascinating for both the right reasons, and the wrong reasons. Sadly I have to conclude that they had great ingredients, but somehow missed the point, or should I say, mangled the point.

Firstly, there is something gothic, or phantasmagoric about this film. Gatsby does not just live in an ordinary mansion. He lives in an enormous fairytale palace. The wealth on display makes me feel the director had actually spent more time reading "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz," and not Gatsby. There never seems to be an out-and out location scene. Everything is stagey - CGI stagey, or like one of those technicolor musicals of the 1950s. All bright colours and no sense that this world could ever have existed apart from in the fevered imaginations of creators of Depression era, or Post War escapism.

Secondly there is no subtlety. The film shouts at you "this is what is happening."

And then there are the anachronisms. The 1920s never looked like that. There was simply not enough wealth then. And to have the music of Jay-Z in the film, and to have the flappers dancing to Hip-Hop was so absurd it could have been genius in the right hands, but sadly it mis-fires. The parties were too grand - too magnificent. In the book, Fitzgerald makes it very clear that Gatsby's parties are tawdry and just a little pathetic.
