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.

Having studied The great Gatsby as a part of my A level English lit I have always enjoyed this story and the universal themes it explores.
This film absolutely blew me away! I thought the acting was fantastic, particularly Leonardo Dicaprio, I actually cried! His portrayal is so sad and complex (especially in comparison to Redford's Gatsby). I loved everything about the film, the music, the clothes, the theatrical elements. Brilliant adaptation.

Never read the book so can't make a comparison, but i did enjoy this. Essentially a lost love story. While Gatsby has achieved wealth by perhaps less than honest means (business is business), he ultimately uses it to lavish parties for those who turn up hoping his lost love will one day come. Marvellous cast makes this a great story, and one which is vibrant and colourful, and a big yes is the modern soundtrack that works brilliantly. A Baz Luhrmann masterpiece.

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!

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.

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.

Firstly, I have to say that this film is just a brilliant overview of the ‘roaring twenties.’ It is filmed as if a fantasy, showing off the decadent wealth, with it’s wonderful palatial mansions and locations, its riotous parties, its art deco interiors & lavish adornments, then there’s the music , the cars and of course those lovely cloths of that period – and the film really goes to town on all of these.
I really enjoyed the film, and so did the buffs as it almost swept up all of the ‘AA’s for that year. It was very lavish, as was the budget at 105 million $. Whilst the audience reaction wasn’t totally overwhelming (Rotten Tomatoes & IMDb giving it around 7/10) it pulled in a massive 350 million$ worldwide.
My only criticism would be that perhaps it’s a bit overly long at 2 hours, 20 minutes. A side from that it’s a wonderful film and a feast for your eyes.
