Colorado Springs Independent Baz Luhrmann misses the mark in The Great Gatsby The problem with Luhrmann's Gatsby isn't that he doesn't show enough respect for The Great Gatsby, it's that he doesn't show enough respect for Jay Gatsby. by Scott Renshaw 05/08/2013
Connect Savannah Review: The Great Gatsby Baz Luhrmann misses an opportunity to draw out parallels to modernity and instead comes across as a cover band director - someone whose celebrated directorial ambitions coattail the mastery of others who came before him. by Jenny Dunn 05/15/2013

Charleston City Paper Baz Luhrmann doesn't show enough respect for Jay Gatsby Because an adaptation of this kind, more than most others, faces assaults from two fronts: those who are ready to be outraged at any violation of the nigh-sacred text, and those whose sphincters involuntarily clench at the recollection of frustrations in high-school English classes. Too literary or not literary enough — that's Luhrmann's lose-lose scenario. by Scott Renshaw 05/08/2013
NUVO Movie review: The Great Gatsby Baz Luhrmann's Gatsby is faithful but phony, filmed in Annoy-o-Vision with all the spatial sophistication of your average View-Master reel. by Ed Johnson-Ott 05/15/2013
