Wealthy Man Who Yearns For Love

Great Gatsby Blu ray Leonardo DiCaprio

Great Gatsby Blu ray Leonardo DiCaprio

"The Great Gatsby Film" featured a wild but entertaining tale of the complicated love triangle between the characters of Tom Buchanan, Myrtle Wilson, Daisy Buchanan, and Jay Gatsby. Joel Edgerton and Isla Fisher did good jobs in capturing the torrid but scandalous romance between Tom Buchanan and Myrtle Wilson. However, I admit that my three favorite character portrayals in the movie were that of Jay Gatsby (played in an extraordinary way by Leonardo Dicaprio), Daisy Buchanan (sensual and brilliant portrayal), and Nick Carraway (outstanding performance by Tobey Maguire). I personally feel that Dicaprio really became one with the Jay Gatsby character and brought the Gatsby persona to life. It was both touching and tragic to see how far he went for his love of Daisy Buchanan. You then have the character of Daisy Buchanan who is mutually in love with Jay Gatsby, and is conflicted on what to do. Last, but not least, there is the heartfelt depiction of Nick Carraway as one with a strong conscience and sees mainly the best in Jay Gatsby. However, his natural concern for Gatsby towards the end of the film was portrayed in an extreme light. "

    I have not read the book. It wasn't required reading in my small Texas Panhandle high school. The reviews were bad, so I went not expecting much of the Baz Luhrmann production. At two hours and twenty-some minutes it looked to be too long by half. Also, neither Leonardo DiCaprio nor Tobey Maguire are favorites of mine. So I was pleasantly surprised to be totally intrigued, entertained, and even touched by the film and its story of two deeply flawed characters and their tragic tale. I found DiCaprio (Gatsby) and Maguire (Gatsby's friend Nick) to be quite satisfying in their roles as was Joel Edgerton (Daisy's husband Tom) who was new to me. I was already sold on Carey Mulligan (Daisy) from her role in Drive. The big party scenes at Gatsby's reminded me of Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge but it didn't distract from the overall flow of the film. The dramatic scene in the hotel room with Daisy, Gatsby, Tom, Nick, and Jordan was the high point of the film and Nick as narrator worked splendidly. Definitely worth seeing.

    Having just finished teaching Gatsby, I went in with very low expectations. However, I thought this new version did a very good job of presenting the Jay Gatsby I know- he is very electric in his love/obsession of/with Daisy. I agree that Daisy, herself, was cut too much slack. I'm not sure why they decided to make her seem reasonable, but other than that, I was pleased with the production. I'm glad we are still interested in keeping The Great Gatsby relevant.

  4. Wow. Baz and Jay-Z together have really done it. It's flashy and definitely different, but I believe it tells Fitzgerald's story well in this time without really modernizing it. The acting was phenomenal, the scenes and costumes superb; the whole movie was just great. There were just a few parts left out or changed from the book, however I don't think it altered the story very much at all. I had to read this book in high school a few years ago and I think my generation will like this movie the most, but I really loved it. One of my favorite movies of all time, maybe my favorite book-to-movie.
