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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love love love 9 Jun 2014
By Harriet
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I adore this film. I saw it twice at the cinema and had to get it on blu-ray. The soundtrack is also amazing. It stays true to the books but the visuals are just amazing. The story is so well told, and even though it's a very long film you hardly notice because it sucks you in. You feel like you're right there, in the 20's singing and dancing. It's perfect. If you haven't seen it, watch it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast for the eyes! 24 Jun 2013
By Lola TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

Baz Luhrmann's use of popular music, rap and modern dance set in a period drama was very original in Moulin Rouge because it suited the bohemian story of Toulouse-Lautrec, who was a pioneer of the new and decadence at the same time. The art scene in Paris during the 1920s was experimenting in the unconventional. So to implant that style into a story about dangers of excess could work, but in The Great Gatsby it fails utterly because none of it felt real. The use of CGI is reminiscent of the Star Wars prequels. There was so much of it that it lost all resemblance to normality. This was a 1920s that no one would recognise. In the inability to believe what you see is real than any character development or sympathy went out of the window. It could make for a spectacular music video but for a feature film it lacked soul, depth or interest. Leonardo DiCaprio was the only saving grace. The narration by Tobey Maguire is awful and Carey Mulligan phoned it in.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish, farcical 6 May 2014
Format:DVD
This version is vacuous, relying on exaggerated visual effects. It's all too much- yuk. The characters are overdrawn, the dialogue pushed into the background. Watch the MUCH better version with Robert Redford instead!

1.0 out of 5 stars Time I will never get back. 6 May 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Casting is totally wrong an too much CGI for a film of its period. Should of kept it in its time without the current day music. Shame, as the book is very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moulin Rouge in another guise? 11 Oct 2014
By JLH
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surreal movie 16 Oct 2014
Format:DVD
What a great epic of a movie. Spectacular, stunning, luxurious, surreal, movie that only a director like Baz can get away with. He also directed Moulin Rouge, this too was an amazing movie. I much prefer this Great Gatsby movie to the original, I found the characters in the original movie wooden. Whereas in this potrayal of the Great Gatsby the characters are all believable and real. They all convey internal sadness, and play their roles flawlessy. As for Leonardo DeCaprio as always he excels in this role that befits the Great Gatsby character. I highly recommend you to buy this movie you wont be disappointed.
