The good news about Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the Fitzgerald masterpiece is that he doesn't use the novel as a mere pretext for his own...

The Greatest Gatsby!

By MedRed
This was my most anticipated movie of the year. After seeing the critics' ratings for this movie, I became disheartened. I'm happy to say that The Great Gatsby lived up to my initial...

An Excess of Luhrmann's Flamboyant Style is More Abusive Than Entertaining

By grrbach
"Excess" is the word that best sums up what is wrong with this Gatsby. I love Baz Luhrman's visual & aesthetic sense (I've seen Moulin Rouge many times), but in Gatsby, his unrelenting use of jump...

Visually stunning, great performances and true to Fitzgerald's intent

By pb7605
I always loved the Great Gatsby, and worried that the movie would divert in meaningful ways from the source material. It did not. The movie's plot remained faithful to Fitzgerald's own and captured...

The Great Gatsby

By elfinalia
Baz Luhrmann is an artist for sure (LOVED Moulin Rouge). DeCaprio is certainly a presence but I was truly intrigued by Joel Edgarton (Tom Buchanan). The Tiffany Jewelry is exquisite. Toby McGuire...

Must see - Excellent Interpretation!

Both my DH and I were pleasantly surprised by this movie. With all the release date changes, we had pegged this as a "clunker." Boy, were we pleasantly surprised! The interpretation of Fitzgerald's...

JG The Modern Version

The Great Gatsby 2013 film version is more concerned with the outer trappings of Gatsby's life, showing his lavish parties in glamorous, colorful 3D, than his inner life. That the film is a tragedy...

The Great Gatsby

By truscica
Beautiful to watch, although a tad cartoonish, filled with glitter and access as the story is told. As usual the underrated Leonardo DiCaprio gave a great performance as did Toby Maquire. Joel...

The great gatsby 3-D

By Teutss
Wonderful cinephotography! Beautiful costumes and setting. In 3-D it comes to life. Great acting and the director added his own touches with the modern music and angular scenes. Worth seeing!...

this movie is something i can't describe-- yes it's because the story is just SO good but the movie as well is just really excellent. I have never read the great gatsby before so I didn't know what...

Engaging

By laruem
The Great Gatsby was an engaging and entertaining evening. The 3D was probably a complete waste but a good marketing tool to boost the revenue, no contributing entertainment value seen. The movie...
