Really good period drama
16 June 2020 | by masonsaulSee all my reviews

Despite an opening 30 mins that's chaotic and rushed as well as an inconsistent soundtrack, The Great Gatsby still manages to be a really good period drama that's emotional, stylish and beautiful. Leonardo DiCaprio gives an incredible performance and Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton are all great. It's well filmed and Baz Luhrmann's direction is overblown but still visually stunning. It's well paced and the music by Craig Armstrong is really good.
