Gatsby

Greatly enjoyed Baz Luhrmann’s “Gatsby”. A triumph after the poor “Australia”. Cinematically refined and beautifully scripted I thought this was an enlightening portrayal of New York 1922 and a great love story between Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Daisy. DiCaprio’s performance was perfection. A lot of poetry in this movie on extravagance and mystery that resolves into human passion. A gripping dreamlike quality – we awoke when passion became clear. Why didn’t many critics like this film? The reviews were so negative I nearly avoided it – particularly after “Australia”.

I’ll reread the book with interest after twenty years. The best movie I have watched in 2013.
