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.

The Great Gatsby" follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles. --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

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.Read more ›
"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] ), 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.Read more ›
Viewers wanting a more faithful representation of the book might want to look elsewhere, but if you enjoy a more rock-n-roll take on something at the expense of complete accuracy, then I should imagine you will have a good time with this move.
While the film is obviously known for its lavish presentation, I'd like to start off talking about the performances and narrative, and just hiw good that is.
The central performances in The Great Gatsby are fantastic; DiCaprio plays Gatsby with endless charm and completely fits the role, while Tobey Maguire gives Carraway a sympathetic and gentle presentation, as a mild mannered contrast to the excess of the other characters. To go with that, Carey Mulligan delivers a great performance as Daisy, giving her lines a soft and almost dreamlike tone while offering a great physical performance in accompaniment. Finally, Joel Edgerton completely inhabits the role of the bullish and callous Tom Buchanan.
All this blends together to make the underlying story amongst all the excess and flair as potent and clear as it can be.
And speaking of flair, there's a whole lot of that on display here.
Not one scene in this movie isn't gorgeous to look at, be it the simply stunning lighting and costumes, or the outrageous parties with hordes of extras. Razor-sharp clarity from the source film and stunning transfer make sure that absolutely no details in the clothes, music and excess gets lost to to the viewer.Read more ›
