Review: The "Great" Gatsby

8:30 AM 5/10/2013 by Sara Vizcarrondo
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. His high-budget/low-brow spectacles are perfect for reproducing the moral vacuum of F. 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.
