Back in the 70’s the classic novel The Great Gatsby was made into a big budget spectacular film starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, but it was so boring it seemed to be four hours long. Despite the period visuals it was painful to sit through. Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann, known for the music video velocity in his movies, has modernized Gatsby to the max. Little chance of falling asleep in this version. No roaring twenties music here – it’s modern and easier to identify with. The Jazz Age suddenly seems a lot like the indulgent 90’s. Everything is bigger, more colorful, and faster. Even Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulliganare animated. Everything about the movie looks interesting except the fact that it’sIN 3-D! Really, is THAT necessary?
