First trailer for Arrested Development - Season 4!
Tonight I went to a screening of The Great Gatsby. Once again, Luhrmann does not disappoint. As a big fan of both the director, Baz Luhrmann, as well as the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, I had high expectations for the film. Arguably the most fantastic segment of the film was it’s excellent cast. It stars the brilliant Leonardo DiCaprio and a shockingly impressive role by Tobey Maguire. However, over-zealous Tom Buchanan was a bit of a disappointment, as was the portrayal of his mistress, Myrtle Wilson.
The film itself was, in a way, unlike any of the director’s former films, however it held its very Luhrmann-esque fast paced scene changes. The only complaints over Nick Carroway are not towards Maguire himself - rather the script’s lack of obvious conceit in his narrative that he had in the book, and the hints of unreliability. Another less-than-settling trait of the film was its overuse of modern music, which is repeated primarily in the beginning. I feel the story really picks up at the point of Gatsby’s introduction (which honestly took my breath away).
Although I didn’t enjoy many aspects of the film, there were many more that completely dazzled me. I certainly recommend watching the film, as it is a great adaptation to the book as well as a great encompassment of fantastic acting and directing.
