The Great Gatsby

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10 Based on 1 Review

Directed by Baz Luhrmann, “The Great Gatsby” follows would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and goes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick moves 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. With Nick drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits, he bears witness, within and without 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.

    Pros:

    Spectacular visuals full of colour with an amazing soundtrack. The 3D element worked really well and helps draw you into the world of Gatsby making you feel that you right there with them. Carey Mulligan (Daisy) and Joel Edgerton (Tom) were standouts in performance.

    Cons:

    Obviously a bit of a tragic love story and predictable but is to be expected given that the story has been around for a while. Whilst I'm a fan of Isla Fisher, she seemed like she was trying too hard with the portrayal of her character, Myrtle, in this film.

    Overall:

    Highly impressive movie that is worth seeing on the big screen and in 3D! The images and colours are so vibrant in how this movie has been filmed that you can't help but appreciate how this larger than life their world is. It takes you on the journey of intrigue wondering who Gatsby is and how he will reveal himself, not only to the viewers, but then Daisy. The soundtrack mixes jazz with 1920's and hip hop and successfully pulls emotions into each scene. Great work on this film Baz!
