The Great Gatsby Reviews

Richard Knight
Windy City Times

...of such bacchanalian proportions that it requires an act of will to sit there passively as the senses are not merely assaulted but pummeled into submission. It's akin to watching a play staged on a carousel.

As a filmmaker, Baz has fine technical knowledge but he never knows when to call cut.

For all the antic, manic itchiness of his Gatsby, for all the jazz hands, the movie doesn't reach out and grab you.

Leonardo DiCaprio is wrong as Jay Gatsby but right when, momentarily embarrassed for once, he stammers that 'this is a terrible mistake.'

What's amazing is the mixture of willpower and uncertainty, mendacity and credulity, gracefulness and self-conscious posing that [DiCaprio] conveys, even before you see him speak.

Just because a film looks like it was dipped in 18-karat gold doesn't mean it's rich in quality

Many audiences will write [this] off as style over substance, but I think [director] Luhrmann supplies style along with great substance.

The Great Gatsby is a visual treat & one worth the 3D surcharge, but feels like a lopsided endeavor that captures the style & energy, but not exactly the heart & soul

Boils down to its essence of pure feeling, in every sense--from literal stimulus and sensation to the emotions, in all their seething, loving, consuming, destructive passions, that drive the characters and their actions.

Alternately intriguing and infuriating: it's very like the sort of movie exuberantly excessive Gatsby himself might have made.

This is kitsch at such a deep level it doesn't even seem to be aware that it's kitsch.

August 24, 2013

Almost 100 percent faithful to the novel in terms of plot, and almost zero percent faithful in terms of theme, character, and impact.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

This take, pimped out in 3D spectacle and one woozy romance, renders the '20s as backdrop and swerves around the book's period-politics. A surreal slice-of-a-1922-summer overbaked into maximalist fantasia. The narrative frame is silly; the pacing is off.

An ambitious, multi-colored triumph, this film will be hard to forget.

The Great Gatsby is Baz Luhrman's visual tribute album to the novel; and it's only in his filmmaking comfort zones that any of the essence of the text elevates beyond karaoke.

Deadspin

Adapting Gatsby just so you can recreate the party scenes is like remaking Born on the Fourth of July for the war scenes. Luhrmann has a knack for missing the point.

A stunning recreation of 1920's New York that sticks as close to its source material as it can while delivering an engaging adaptation.

Movie Talk

If Fitzgerald's Jazz Age classic is the Great American Novel, then this frantically jazzed-up 3D film is the pop-up-book version.

Film Comment Magazine

Though it is quite possible that the neutered feel of Luhrmann's Gatsby is entirely due to studio meddling, the finished product isn't enjoyable, either as campy fun or a serious attempt at dismantling the American dream.
