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.
