I'm shocked!! I just saw the first trailer for his new Gatsby movie and it looks like it might be really good!! And the clothes are awesome, even if Ralph Lauren didn't make them this time...

^ Yes, although I have a reverence for the Redford film version of Gatsby, I think Leo is bringing a grittier look to the role; one criticism of the 70s version of the story was that Gatsby was too 'sanitised', if you will- after all, he is a big time gangster, not just a social climber... I continue to be impressed at what a good actor Leo is- and I need more pictures of the clothes, particularly since the last movie set such a very high standard!!

I was actually not a fan of the 70's version with Reford at all, so to my mind there's ample room for a good screen version of Gatsby.

My criticisms of 1970's films are more in less in line with most people's: I felt it was too sanitised and lifeless. The sets were great, the costumes were great, the actors looked great in their parts, everything was accurate, but I never got a sense of connection to the material.

Baz Luhrmann has his strengths and weaknesses as a director but one thing that his films rarely are is bland or unemotional. You could argue that he's overindulgent and that this new version seems to highight glitz and glamour but as you said in your post, there's a grittiness to it too that seems appropriate. There's a tarnish on the gold so to speak, that I saw in this trailer. I think that's something that Fitzgerald conveyed in his novel that really comes through here.

Of course that's reading a lot into a 2 minute trailer! I guess I'm just saying that I've yet to see a screen version of this novel that I've liked but that I'm optimistic about this one.

Thanks. Can't wait for this movie. I'm guessing he's playing one of Tarantino's bad guys?

^ Yup, and supposedly the trailer is going to premiere before Prometheus, so we should get a peek really soon.
