The Great Gatsby Reviews

Stuart Klawans
The Nation

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.

Cinema Crazed

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

We Got This Covered

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.

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

Cinema Sight

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

For some reason every time someone mentions Gatsby's name for the first time someone else has to say it questioningly, which to me sounds like a perfect condition for a drinking game

Cinema em Cena

Se esta adaptação de Luhrmann funciona melhor dramaticamente que as tentativas anteriores, isto se deve à sua capacidade de humanizar o personagem-título sem desvendá-lo completamente.

A riveting reinterpretation for the Hip-Hop Generation apt to be best appreciated by fans of gangsta' rap videos weaned on shallow, hedonistic displays of misogyny and materialism.

While it never stops calling attention to itself, it's still a wonder to behold.

When you throw in the extravagant sets, costumes and visual effects, it's as if you're watching a moving painting. New York in the 1920s could not look any more beautiful.

June 3, 2013

What's truly telling about this brash, boisterous adaptation is that the director clearly understands the spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel better than most film critics.

Screenwize

Sure, it's a Bazdardisation, but underneath the over-the-top art-deco design there's an elegant and sometimes touching tale to be found, with Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) reaching out for the woman he cannot seem to forget.

The Popcorn Junkie

It's cinematic gluttony and Baz Luhrmann does it incredibly well, but like the attendees of one of Gatsby's shindigs, you'll have a fun time but not remember much the next day

Like Gatsby himself, it comes so close to achieving its dream, only to fall agonisingly and frustratingly short.

Cinema Autopsy

The Great Gatsby is so close to being a great film, let down by its own refusal to exist in the moment.

Platform

No one should feel profoundly disappointed that Luhrmann has shed the author's incisive social commentary in favour of a melange of garishness because he hasn't, as almost all of the film's idiosyncrasies are perfectly pitched.

Feels warm, extra-terrestrial, and impossible... Whether one thinks it a folly or not, we'll never see another Great Gatsby like the one Baz Luhrmann has magicked up.

Luhrmann's "Gatsby" is made with enough passion and vision to liberate it from its revered source material - no small feat.

Luhrmann understands Fitzgerald's book and brings the writer's classic prose to life on cinematic terms that feel thrilling, visceral and immediate.
