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 found this film to be very absorbing. I could not help comparing it with Moulin Rouge, even if I had not been aware it was the same director:
Similar unusual, colourful sequences with the camera zooming into scenes, sometimes from afar. The outlandish decadence, colourful characters. The often lavish costumes, jewellery and sets and props. The often very lively music- sometimes almost out of place- but not quite. The 'Green Light', instead of 'The Green Fairy' and the tragic love story. Obviously a lot of CGI was used- but how else could the film be made?
The 142 minutes went very quickly for me and I've added the book to my reading list.

This is an enjoyable remake of the classic film based on the F Scott Fitzgerald book about 1920s America, and the rise of the newly weathly into American sociey. Fimled beautifully throughout, with some of the lighting and sets so stunning they deseve to be watched over and over, this is a rather sad tale of broken dreams and over reaching, although the tone is brightened by superb perfomaces by Di Caprio as Gatsby and McGuire as Carraway.

Some of the music - jazz trumpets from the balconies of houses in crowded for example works exteremly well, but some of the more modern sounding peices - people doing the Charlelston to rap for example - were a liitle incongruous for me, and for a moment blew the supension of disbelief that you need to really get into the film - they made the film making obvious for a moment or two and punctured the dream like quality,

This is small gripe though - overall I enjoyed the film and found the visuals stunning

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.

There wasn't a minute of this film during which I was bored. As usual with Baz Luhrmann, if there wasn't emotion on screen, there was some kind of visually impressive spectacle. I spent much of the running time wowed by the extraordinary visuals, which was probably a good thing, as for the first half of the film, it's distinctly light on plot.
While we're introduced to Maguire's fairly innocent wannabe writer and everyone wonders who the mysterious Mr Gatsby is, almost all of the rest of the time is filled by drunken parties whose whirling colours, enthusiastic dancers and flying confetti / ribbons / champagne corks put the can-can scene in Moulin Rouge to shame. They're a breathtaking example of candy for the eyes - nobody does decadent opulence like Luhrmann.
However, once the actual plot begins to emerge, and the love story develops, similarities with his earlier well-loved work start to rear their heads a bit too often. Star-crossed lovers who yearn to be together? Yep. Furiously paced, noisy parties to open the movie and fill out the running time until something actually happens? Yep. A comically awkward first romantic meeting? Yep. A jilted lover? Yep. A writer relating the story? Yep. Someone even breaks out a revolver near the climax.
While the film was undoubtedly enjoyable, I would have liked it more if it hadn't felt like it was struggling so hard to follow Moulin Rouge's template and had been allowed to be more of its own animal.
It's a visually gorgeous, dramatic movie. It's just a slight disappointment that you've seen this dame before - just wearing a more theatrical French dress...

Yet another success from Lhurmann. The sets, the music and of course Dicaprios ability to portray pretty much any character scored a 10/10 for me!
