An over the top portrayal of the classic novel, while at times excessive and tasteless, it truly hits home with the novels original critique on the excess of the time. The cast was **excellent**, the movie stayed true to the novel in all the most important ways. I personally feel the modern soundtrack wasn’t appropriate in several cases, but a couple flawless executions.
Baz Luhrmann repeats what he did with Rome + Juliet and creates a horrible moster full of FX and exaggeration.
Still, the cast performs well.
The soundtrack made it unbearable
Whoever decided that blaring modern pop/ hip hop music into a story of the early 20’s was a good idea needs their heads examined. It not only removes you completely from the story but jolts you so far out of it that you need a few minutes to try and refocus yourself back into the story. (and that’s not a knock on this genre of music, it just has no place here..)
After an hour, I could stand no more, the acting and story seemed great, but the soundtrack was too much to take.
So much great music was made during this time period that if used effectively could have elevated this story. Such a waste.
Stop being pretentious and enjoy a decent film.
After seeing this film I was more than a little disgusted to see so many negative reviews. The main problem with this film I find is in the first 20-30 minutes, a common problem I spy in Luhrman films that should by no means define an entire film. Giving away nothing the film begins at a brisk and overly flamboyant pace but after a bit it hits what I like to call “Baz’s golden point”, slows to absolute perfection. That first half hour will leave more than a few shaking their heads, but power through it and you will find The Great Gatsby in all its glory. Luhrman stays as true to the source as he can and Dicaprio gives yet another glorious performance. If I’m going to be honest I think a lot of the negative reviews coming in are due to the “classic” status of the book, people want to act like the hours of school discussions should make this film less fanciful and serious 100 percent of the time. Thing is we have that version twice over in the 1974 & 2000 adaption. Gatsby 2013 is beautiful, over the top, heart wrenching, and thoroughly enjoyable flick that I shall always highly recommend.
