The Great Gatsby

Slant Magazine
24 August 2013
  • Excerpt: From Willy Loman and his diamonds in Death of a Salesman to the Joads and their famous westbound road trip in The Grapes of Wrath , revealing the American myth as a shiny yet futile fantasy is nothing unfamiliar in literature, but doing so while implicating an audience in its own excess is a more...

The Great Gatsby

  • Conclusion: The Great Gatsby meets one's expectations for a 3D Baz Luhrmann adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel. The director's brand of opulence is surprisingly not at odds with the rich source text.

The Great Gatsby (2013)

High-Def Digest
22 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The fourth time isn't the charm. Though Baz Luhrmann's interpretation of 'The Great Gatsby' has merit, especially during its dark last hour, this glitzy, often garish adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic can't be considered the definitive version.

The Great Gatsby

BluRay Authority
22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: If ever there was an actor destined to play Jay Gatsby, I’d have to imagine that Leonardo DiCaprio’s name would have been on the short list (and, obviously that was true).  DiCaprio seems to have that classic look to him and call me crazy, but I could see him having drinks with Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

  • Conclusion: Baz, Baz, Baz. I'm a fan, old sport, I am. Moulin Rouge! still gets me every time. Every. Time . But The Great Gatsby is too much flash and way too much fizzle. It isn't a matter of style over substance either. It's a matter of style without substance.

The Great Gatsby (2013) Blu-ray Review

DoBlu
19 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Never impoverished for content and often anxious with first act pacing, Baz Luhrmann’s visually arresting Great Gatsby is a speed demon of embellished character. Brandishing narrative framework of a whittling Nick Carraway (Tobey MaMaguire) writing a novelization under guidance from psychiatric...
