Baz Luhrman and Leo Dicaprio team up again in "The Great Gatsby", based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel of a high society love affair in the roaring 20's. Being a Luhrman directed film, you know you're going to get some fabulous set design and vivid colors and images. The excesses that play well in that department also hinders the script, a bloated mess that does little to endear or engage the viewer in Gatsby's quest to reign in Daisy (Carey Mulligan) after a 5 year absence, as Daisy married old money while Gatsby was fighting in WWI. Upon returning from the war, Gatsby is a ridiculously rich man, hosting parties nightly and currying favor with influential people. Using Gatsby's neighbor, Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) to narrate the tale, such narration quickly wears out its welcome. Weirdly enough all I could think while watching this film was "#richpeoplesproblems" All in all, just an overly long and soulless adaptation of a time-worn literary classic. I give it 2 stars, or a grade of C.
