    With 'The Great Gatsby,' Does Baz Luhrmann Prove He's More Gratuitous Than Michael Bay?

    The least interesting aspects of Baz Luhrmann's unsurprisingly lavish near-musical adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" come from the source material. That should surprise exactly no one. More to the point, the sprawling tale of millionaire loner Jay Gatsby (a confident Leonardo DiCaprio) yearning to be...

    Review: 'The Great Gatsby' Is A Decadently Empty Tale Of Empty Decadence & Impossible Love

    The distinctive, vista-obsessed movies of Baz Luhrmann are nothing if not stylish, generally flamboyant and lavish in their candy-colored visual treatments. Subtlety has never been of much interest to the Australian filmmaker who has leaned heavily on melodrama and romantic fairy tales told in a pas...
