It is not the novel, no, but happy to report, the madly embattled result is a real movie.

A fan of the Redford/Farrow version, I was prepared to be disappointed. And I was wrong. It may be a bit too much of a wild ride visually. But it gave me a new way of looking at a familiar figure. And there's something pretty great about that.

It most closely echoes Moulin Rouge, and that may be the easiest way to evaluate the film. if you liked Moulin Rouge, you'll probably like Gatsby. If you didn't, then you're in for more of the same.

Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby might not reach the dizzying heights of Fitzgerald's novel, but he gives it a damn good shot, old sport.

The film's strength is its visual style and Luhrmann's daring high-wire act.

Luhrmann is quite content to stay on the surface, to rub elbows with tuxedoed gents and bewitching flappers.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
