    The Great Gatsby - Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film

    Baz Luhrmann's version of The Great Gatsby with Leonardo Dicaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire is set for release at Christmas. The trailer was just released and it looks AMAZING!



    Officially excited!

    For all sad words of tongue and pen,
    The saddest are these, 'It might have been.'

    I had just watched the Sparknotes video review on the book yesterday. I had thought the movie came out earlier last decade or so.

    The trailer seems really nice. Hopefully it does well; not sure how 'historical' movies do at the box office or with the audience.

    Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film (Gatsby)

    Very excited about this:



    and not to take away from Leonardo Dicaprio's film presence and talent, but he is one of the most beautiful men I have ever seen.

    re: The Great Gatsby - Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film

    Uhm, no. No, no, no, no, no. Blasphemy!

    The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite novels, and the 1974 Robert Redford original one of my favorite films... one of the most perfect translations from book to film I've ever seen. It caught that peculiar tone of restrained hysteria of the Fitzgerald novel, Redford perfectly portrayed the mysterious blankness of Gatsby, Farrow perfectly portrayed the veneer of vapid sweetness over an empty soul as Daisy. I thought Tom Buchanan could have been cast better (Bruce Dern was far too weak-looking), and they used the wrong Newport house for Gatsby's mansion (but perhaps Ochre Court wasn't available and Rosecliff and Marble House were), but those are the merest quibbles.

    This movie is going to have to be viewed as one of those "loosely inspired by" types of deals. One rather expects that of Baz, but he's pissing on one of my legends here and I am finding it difficult to not be angry about it. It has been infused with dazzling passion on its every surface instead of the misty brittleness of the novel; it's glitzy and glamorous and hot... a Baz Luhrmann movie. I might be able to enjoy the film (it certainly looks interesting) if I can completely divorce it from the source material in my mind. I mean, Leo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire are certainly nice to look at; but they simply are not Jay and Daisy and Nick. They just aren't.

    re: The Great Gatsby - Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film

    ^
    Swellegant, have you seen the 1949 version with Alan Ladd?

    People say that classic plays like Shakespeare and classical music can be interpreted in different ways to suit the current day. I don't know. I sort of enjoyed the 1970s Jack Clayton/Robert Redford version. But I'm wary of what the vulgar Luhrmann will do to mess up this American classic.

    The sets look good in the new version but I'm very wary of the manic, camp Luhrmann. I don't understand why it will take eight months to edit the raw footage for Gatsby. His crass movie Moulin Rouge was ruthlessly over-edited to make it incomprehensible and unwatchable.

    (I wonder if those eight months will be spent eliminating all those moles on Daisy; there about eight of them on the face, neck and arms)

    I'm with Swellegant on this one.

    When I saw the preview and heard the music at the beginning my first thought was, "Oh, yeah. When I think of Gastby I think of hip hop."

    Towards the end is a remake of U2's "Love is Blindness." Whilst the song is powerful, it is so because of those who played it and the manner in which it was played.

    Oh, well; another 'must-see' movie on which I'll pass... anyway, what's for tea?

    Well, I look forward to this film. Ive enjoyed Moulin Rouge as well as Romeo + Juliet, so perhaps this film was made with the youth in mind....meaning to bring another generation to the novel. Not going to lie...Im 23 and this trailer made me go grab the book off of my book shelf.

    I hate the great gasby in book and movie form. However....I will say that the original movie will be hard to beat. It's not like there was a real need to remake it. It's not like there was some horrid CGI in the original that could be replaced with more modern technology...

    (i.e. Clash of the Titans from back in the day ... definitely needed to be remade with that horrible special effects feel to it.... Great Gatsby...not so much).

    Completely agreed and the trailer shows yes some great visuals, but some people don't even know what the story is, and every trailer should have a small synopsis of the storyline, but it showed me nothing.
    I found this quote on tumblr
    "i’m glad leo is playing gatsby,
    he never achieved the american dream the same way leo is never going to win the oscar" lol.
    The trailer is not a very good representation of the story or movie, Leo really didn't seem that meant for the role but whatever I don't know. Not looking forward to people asking me to see it.

    It's because Luhrmann likes gaudy, vulgar sensation. He's oblivious to any subtlety in Fitzgerald's book.

    Re: The Great Gatsby - Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film

    The Great Gatsby's already been filmed four times. There was a silent version with Warner Baxter made in the 20s; the Alan Ladd/Betty Field version (hardly definitive) filmed in the 40s; the Robert Redford/Mia Farrow version from the 70s (flawed but worth watching); and a TV movie version with Toby Stephens as Jay Gatsby and Paul Rudd as Nick Carraway. Having seen three of the four, I can't say that any of them really captured the essence of the novel. Novels don't often transfer well to film, and Fitzgerald's books seem to typify that. Of the four, the Redford version's cinematography seems to capture the look of the twenties era the best.

    The trailers for the Luhrmann film certainly look visually opulent, but if they're not going to use period music from the twenties, they're making a mistake.

  22. #22

    Re: The Great Gatsby - Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film

    ^
    but what is the essence?

    the prose or plot or characters?
    not decor costumes and music soundtrack?

  23. #23

    Re: The Great Gatsby - Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film

    pat grimshaw: That's an excellent question and it's difficult to answer. There are so many different themes in the book that I don't think any filmmaker could do it justice, and maybe it's unfair to even expect them to. On the surface, it's a love story, albeit a somewhat unrequited and ultimately tragic one. Dig a little deeper and it's also about classes in America, Gatsby representing the nouveau riche versus the patrician Tom Buchanan. Dig deeper still and it's a novel about the failure of the American dream, along with inability to repeat the past.

    One thing the Baz Luhrmann film does seem to have, at least on the basis of the trailers, is feeling. The Jack Clayton version with Redford seemed emotionally dead in a lot of scenes (even with Karen Black overacting, and that's hard).

    ^ I like that. I felt Fitzgerald's prose was most important…and that he was capturing a time and mood (which was unfamiliar to non-Americans like me)

    I know I want be seeing this film because —even though it was shot near me— Luhrmann has the brains of a repressed gay adolescent millionaire.

    Both. The book by Herman Wouk was a guilty pleasure when I was younger. James Franciscus starred in the film version of the book; it's relatively obscure these days.

    I saw the trailer recently in the movie theatre and I think it's going to be very good. Leonardo Dicaprio is great in all his movies. Can't wait to see the movie. I saw the Robert Redford movie a long time ago. I'm sure this version will be different.

    This is gonna be a choice by generation I suspect. I've never liked Dicraprio - like him best at the end of Titanic...
    Read the book in high school and truly enjoyed Redford and the cast. This new version looks like it's just trying too hard.

    ^ I love that song and the way it's performed. It worked magic during the film scenes it was used in. Came home and got it from Amazon downloads immediately.

    I saw this film in 3D. Not sure it actually needs to be in 3D, though.

    The acting was good. I enjoyed DiCaprio/Tobey/Mulligan and really all the cast. Visuals are well done, fascinating. The music was lush, haunting and a nice update from typical period 1920s jazz that would've been the "in thing" at the time but would sound outdated today and wouldn't have the same impact.

    A really enjoyable movie if you don't compare it to the book or 1974 version. Which you really shouldn't because this is a 2013 version.

    ^You can say that but if a movie is based on a book, you need to compare. I have read the book and DiCaprio is not a "facial" actor at all to delve into the inner-turmoil of Gatsby. You can't give silky soliloquies to opine your character's thoughts like a book. Baz has always been bad at the "show, don't tell" aspect of film. Leo is a decent actor no doubt but I always found him to be quite the talker which isn't a bad thing, however, he "shallow dives" into a character which is the exact reason he is has so many nominations and like one win.

    ^ I'm saying you "shouldn't" compare it to other film versions of the book, or the book itself, because I saw it as Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby "based on the novel" of the same name. Not a carbon copy, word for word translation of it.

    Most of the negative reviews by critics are complaining about the changes and additions (e.g. the psychiatrist's office writing of the novel twist) to the novel. Well, so? The director has artistic license to make it his own.

    I will check out this movie adaptation with neutral expectations. I saw the older version with Redford in school and enjoyed that one, along with the book, very much.

    The hiphop/rap music bothered me a little, but I liked it combined with jazz. Most interesting.

    I must say though, I realized how amazing Leo is at romance. He always makes me feel like I am that special girl.

    Re: The Great Gatsby - Another gorgeous Baz Luhrmann Film

    I've never read the book but I definitely plan to. I never watched the trailer but I definitely plan to watch the movie. why, you might ask? because of Lana. and Florence

    Lana Del Rey and Florence Welch have both written songs for the Great Gatsby.. Lana's was really just.. wow.. Flo's was nice but she kept talking about tearing a yellow dress and if there is no tearing of a yellow dress in the story, I'll be disappointed. LOL jk, I love Flo too much :P


    (don't hate on me D:, I will read the book, I PROMISE)

    Went out with 'ex-husband' and watched this entertaining yet otherwise sadly aweful movie in 3D.
    I did not need to see evil dancing spiderman in that role. Also Leonardo DiCaprio was probably miscast as Gatsby.
    Never seen any of the other movies nor read the book. The movie doesn't work as a period piece nor as a play that explores morality.

    I saw this film in 3D. Not sure it actually needs to be in 3D, though.

    The acting was good. I enjoyed DiCaprio/Tobey/Mulligan and really all the cast. Visuals are well done, fascinating. The music was lush, haunting and a nice update from typical period 1920s jazz that would've been the "in thing" at the time but would sound outdated today and wouldn't have the same impact.

    A really enjoyable movie if you don't compare it to the book or 1974 version. Which you really shouldn't because this is a 2013 version.
    I'm DYING to see this movie.

    Just saw it. The 3D was unnecessary, but it was stunning to look at.

    I read the book and saw the original film in high school, but it didn't have as much of an impact on me as revisiting the story today.

    I saw it today as well. I had forgotten a lot about the original story but it all came back to me in a good way as I watched it this time. One of the more enjoyable period pieces for me. In a strange way, it was hauntingly beautiful. It is an acquired taste though, not everyone will like it. The only "criticism" I have for the movie was that maybe it could have been about half an hour shorter. It dragged out a little too much at certain points, imo.

    saw it today and had never read the book. generally i thought it was too long and of course the story is all about alcoholic, morally dubious (at best) wealthy racists bed-hoppers who face the tribulations associated with such a life-style. i thought the character of 'tom' was the best performance, the rest were pretty flat in my opinion.
