The Great Gatsby Film

Everyone is speaking about the latest Baz Luhrmann's film, The Great Gatsby, so here's what we think. In general Baz Luhrmann took a lot of risks when creating one of America's most well known and revered books into a film. However, Mr. Luhrmann remains faithful to the book in the text, key moments and dialogue. The contrast lies in how Mr.
Luhrmann interpreted it: in his typical style full of raucous music, glitter, and wild colors. Totally different than Fitzgerald's style. Maybe it was the 3D that set it off. Though the book is obviously dramatic, it always remains melancholy, the film just takes it overboard, but surely this will appeal to the action and fantasy that today's youth are used to when watching film. Chances are it may even get some of them to read the book!
