Now You See Me
On paper, Now You See Me looks like one heck of a heist thriller. Featuring a terrific cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco as four magicians brought together by a mysterious benefactor, Mark Ruffalo as the rumpled cop hellbent on stopping their dazzling crime spree, and Morgan Freeman as a famous magic debunker who might be working for either side, it gives every appearance of a sleek, tightly written caper, with the added benefit of cool magic tricks thrown into the mix.

Baz Lurmann’s Great Gatsby is garish and bright, chocked with the bling you hoped he’d throw around like it’s cheap—and it is.

Scott Fitzgerald’s book, and for all its anachronisms, Lurmann’s reproduction couldn’t be more loyal to the text:

May 3rd the director who “decoded” gaslight melodrama and Shakespeare with uber-modern over-the-top-ness, will perplex and delight with his revisionist play on Fitzgerald. I can’t wait. Ironically, it’s not a subject I love.
