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.

The Great Gatsby, as directed by Baz Luhrmann, is going to polarise audiences. And that's okay.

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.

VIDEO 3D:

Warner's 1080p/MVC-encoded 3D picture was photographed with the Panavision Genesis HD Camera system using Red Epic cameras. The 3D conversion was done by Prime Focus. This video presentation is as deep, dazzling and extravagant as its cinematography, with bountiful colours, exacting detail and some much needed dimensionality courtesy of an immersive 3D experience. Edges are razor sharp, refined, and free of ringing; textures are crisp, clean and exceedingly well-resolved; delineation is terrific. Simon Duggan's palette is brassy and brazen, primaries are flashy with inky black levels and sharp contrast. (5/5)

VIDEO 2D:

This 2013 edition of The Great Gatsby arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.40:1 encode. The transfer is pristine and clean, with plenty of pop. The strong contrast heightens the impact of all the picture components. Hues are bright and bold, especially the green foliage and red lipstick. The various wide angle shots of the landscapes, digitally created backgrounds and period specific world look absolutely stunning. Objects onscreen are exquisitely detailed with a luminous and sparkling clarity that seems infinitely lucid and three dimensional. This is a sophisticated visual design that uses real imagery mixed with CGI. The end result is a flawless and superlative video presentation that truly evokes the spirit and emotion of the film. (5/5)

AUDIO (both 3D and 2D):

The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio lossless track is full of punch, power and presence, conveying Luhrmann and Armstrong’s musical canvas with each beat, blare and snare roll, with just enough playfulness and flare to make its command of the soundstage well deserved.
