The Great Gatsby

Bar Luhrmann’s up-to-11 3D adap­ta­tion of F. Scott Fitzger­ald’s jazz era opus casts Leonardo DiCaprio as a man of mys­tery, wealth and taste, re­lent­lessly seek­ing re­union with a so­ci­ety debu­tante from his past (Carey Mul­li­gan). (Re­port, Page 9; Re­view, Page 11). They say: A sur­prise hit in the US, but crit­ics are split down the mid­dle on whether the film is tri­umph or trash. Wesay: Fran­tic edit­ing and gilded ev­ery­thing, but by leav­ing the char­ac­ters un­mem­o­rable, Luhrmann’s am­bi­tious ef­fort ends up fab­u­lously for­get­table. Run­ning time 143 min­utes. Screens at Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Robina, Coolan­gatta, Har­bour Town, The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast, Nerang, Yatala Drive-in.
