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.

Synopsis

It's the spring of 1922 in New York City, a decadent playground of shifting morals, glittering jazz, bootleg empires and skyrocketing stocks. Chasing the American Dream, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Golden Globe® nominee Tobey Maguire) arrives from the Midwest only to land next door to Jay Gatsby (three-time Oscar® nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), a mysterious millionaire whose estate overflows with endless parties. As Nick's beautiful cousin Daisy (Oscar® nominee Carey Mulligan) and her blue-blooded husband Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) fall into Gatsby's orbit, Nick bears witness to a tragedy of impossible love and incorruptible dreams. Based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's timeless epic, The Great Gatsby mirrors the struggles of modern times in a dazzling visual journey from the mind of Baz Luhrmann, director of the Oscar®-winning* Moulin Rouge.

I initially didn't want to see this film. As someone who formerly disliked a lot of Baz Luhrmann's filmography with the exception of Romeo and Juliet, I thought that him adapting F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel would be a cataclysmic failure. It was only after rewatching Moulin Rouge recently that I changed my mind about watching this film. Moulin Rouge recently became one of my new favourite films and I was interested in indulging myself in watching The Great Gatsby. This film, whilst not great, does remain an ambitious and intriguing adaptation of the book with Luhrmann's own style integrated into the story. Despite the mixed reception this film got, it has been popular with audiences and one of the most underrated films of last year.

One of the best aspects of The Great Gatsby is the casting. Pretty much every actor equips themselves well into their roles and they all suit their characters. Leonardo DiCaprio is perfect as Gatsby, completely capturing his suaveness and charm as well as displaying his insecurities, particularly when discussing his past or when pursuing Daisy. Carey Mulligan does great work as Daisy and conveys the character's selfishness well. Joel Edgerton is great as the imposing and unrestrained Tom. Tobey Maguire is probably the weak spot but even his role as Nick is impressive and plays the role of observer very well in the story. Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke also make the most out of their smaller roles.

One of the central criticisms of the film is Luhrmann's use of modern day pop and RNB songs in a film taking place in the 20s. Whilst employing the use of jazz music in some scenes as well as Bach, he also uses hip hop tunes for some of the party scenes as well as songs from Lana Del Rey, Beyonce and the Black Eyed Peas.

Maybe it's my age, but being brought up at the time on the 1974 film version of 'The Great Gatsby' which was a faithful interpretation of the book, but which itself was labelled as disappointing, I can't help but think that Luhrmann's version of Fitzgerald's classic novel is lost beneath the waves of a storm of CGI and Hip-Hop.
Tobey Maguire's interpretation of Nick Carraway is flaccid and one-dimensional, leaving aside the incongruity of Luhrmann making a recovering alcoholic out of Fitzgerald's teetotal narrator, Joel Edgerton's Tom Buchanan is brutish with no other distinguishable characteristic, whilst Carey Mulligan shimmers as Daisy, but otherwise gives no hint as to why a man would devote his life to capturing her heart.
Only Leonardo DiCaprio displays empathy in his characterisation of Gatsby, but he too is overwhelmed by the film's pyrotechnics.
Perhaps, ultimately, 'The Great Gatsby' is unfilmable and should be left to rest for another generation.

Two movies came to mind as I was watching this 3D spectacle: Citizen Kane and The Wizard of Oz. For all its visual panache it is at heart a psychological spiral into the mind of a man. Obsessed. Transfixed. Driven. Alone. Utterly alone.

The distortion of money looms over it all. Vast amounts and none at all. Motivations abused. The screenplay is joyfully literary in its use of language. Perhaps too much is told rather than shown but the descriptions, the adjectives are to be savoured.

The 3D side of the effect suffers from being a letterbox widescreen aspect ratio (black bar top and bottom) even on my 100" projection screen. It is on a par with Hugo 3D but nowhere near Avatar. It is, after all, a domestic story even if the domestic settings are large mansions upon a river bank.

Perhaps its greatest accolade is that I'm looking forward to seeing it again. Maybe I shall have a different focus as I view the 2D blu ray disc also supplied with this version of the movie. A man doomed by his inability to see himself. Unlike the narrator. A writer.

UPDATE: It takes 2 or 3 minutes before the blu-ray disc begins to play. Your clock will stay 00.00. Then a light begins to shine centre screen. Could be clever opening by filmmakers (the light Gatsby stares at) or could be my machine.

The cinematic trailer didn't do justice to this film - avoided it at the cinema because of it, even though this is my wife's favourite novel of all time. A worthy, decent stab at the novel that consciously insists on the pizazz of the decadent 20s, injecting a colour that might have been present - just never know through all the sepia history books. Dicaprio tries hard but never quite captures my feelings about Gatsby, but then Redford's version does stamp such a large footprint. OK, Gatsby might be a bit of a dweeb who tries too hard, but at the end of the day he does reel everyone in, casts a spell - Dicaprio doesn't seem to get the level of magic that he exerts on himself as well as others . But it is game, has a vision and goes hard after it. Conviction in a film, an artistic idea, is to me vital. I'd far rather something like this that attempts something, that makes me respond even if it doesn't quite get there, than some safe version. Well worth a look.

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.
