Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope. ...I come to the admission that it has a limit.
An adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby's nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the finest actors of all time, did not discover myself, but particularly in this film, he seems born for the part of the Great Gatsby. The final, leaves the viewer breathless...

The only reason I managed to watch this movie until the end was Leonardo DiCaprio. Amazing perfomance from an amazing actor. None of the other actors stand out (except perhaps Edgerton), and Maguire was terrible.

But the worst thing about this movie is, by far, its score: I felt literally disgusted by it. And it was not only because the (bad) artists who participated in it, but also and mainly because it has nothing to do with the 20s era; it fails to transmit the Jazz hype that period had. I can not understand how modern-era music can help the viewers to connect with Gatsby's parties' emotions. It just feels so unreal, so unnatural, so fake.

The book adaption itself is not bad, it actually sticks with the original story... But it is not enough to make it a good movie. I'll try to remember Baz Luhrmann's name so to avoid any of his other films.

An intriguing story re-told again with attention to mystery.
