BEST FILMS OF 2013
12) THE GREAT GATSBY

 Before seeing Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation, I re-read Fitzgerald’s novel for the first time in 13 years.  I remembered the doomed ambition of Jay Gatsby to capture the love of Daisy Buchanan, the brutal and hypocritical Tom Buchanan, the harsh elegance of Jordan Baker, and the incisive moral judgement of the narrator Nick Caraway.   All those elements are vividly brought to the screen from the decedent parties to the broiling, alcohol drenched arguments.  Each actor brings Fitzgerald’s words to life, especially Carey Mulligan playing both the dream girl and disappointing reality, which is hard to conceive even with Fitzgerald’s expert prose.  And I don’t have the words to express how good Leonardo DiCaprio is as Gatsby.  He nails the flashiness, eagerness, and combustable insecurity of the man.
