Reviewed on 12/14/2013...
This 2013 version of the movie is a sad and sorry distortion of a classic. Clearly, the movie is appealing to some love of Hollywood glitz and glamour which was not part of the original. I was wondering if the movie was going to break into a musical at one point because there was so much Hip Hop and Rap music in the background. The movie moved at too quick a pace, which did not allow for the expression of Gatsby's melancholy without Daisy. Nick, Nick, Nick, where can we go from there? Goodness, in the book and in the movie with Robert Redford, Nick had some slight draw to the 20s fun-loving lifestyle, but he never let it overtake him. He remained a guarded, moral, and wise overseer. This is not how this 2013 version portrayed him. Additionally, Gatsby's character in this movie was way too emotional and angry, traits that were not portrayed in the original story. In fact, Gatsby prided himself on proper social etiquette in the original. This trivializes the themes and character development of the true classic. Let's just put it this way, it you never read the book or watched the movie with Robert Redford, you might be able to put up with this warped version for plot only, nothing more. Otherwise, you will be angered by the contorted display of a literary masterpiece. I can only hope that we don't lose the true classic in the process of Hollywood's disaster.
