The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby ½

Baz Luhrman made one of my very favorite movies, one that fucked with the same conventions that Gatsby fails to fuck with. This was probably the most disingenuous movies I've seen. Its slick, dull and uninteresting. We've all read the book, yes, all of us except Baz. It is so bad it makes me fearful to go back and watch Moulin Rouge.
