This is as much as one could expect from Baz Luhrman, great production, visual richness. Not as great as I HOPED it could be, not as lame as I THOUGHT it will be. It did went a couple of minute longer (or started too late, the introduction was a bit long and confusing, and a bit lost to where it's leading us). Luhrmann failed to showcase Gatsby in the eyes of Carraway as Christian did Satine in Moulin Rouge(2004). Although DiCaprio and Mulligan's performance is a solid as they've always done it. And credit for Carey Mulligan for fitting in well to a period set.
