Trivia

At one of Gatsby's parties, there is a scene where Nick tries to take a glass of wine from a waiter's tray only for the glass to be taken first by someone else. This seems to be a nod to a similar scene in Spider-Man 2 (2004), in which Tobey Maguire repeatedly fails to pick up a glass of wine from the trays of various waiters, always having someone else pick them up first.

Goofs

In the song "No Church in the Wild" there is a reference to the Rolls-Royce Corniche. This particular model was first produced in 1971, but was first designed in the 1930s (though production was halted because of WWII) while the movie is set in 1922. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Nick Carraway: In my younger and more vulnerable years, my father gave me some advice. "Always try to see the best in people," he would say. As a consequence, I'm inclined to reserve all judgements. But even I have a limit.

The Great Gatsby
15 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

I've read The great Gatsby book several times and I watch the original movie before Han d. Of the two movies this one really captures the essence of the book. On people complain about the narration but it was only solution to really accurately convey the story. The parties are epic and that's what I kind of felt they were in the book. DiCaprio deserves more credit.
