The Great Gatsby.

Oh Mr. Luhrmann, how I adore thee!

There are very few directors that I fawn over and it’s London to a brick that Mr. Baz Lurhmann is my absolute favorite. His directorial style is everything that I look for in a movie from the script down to every minute detail. He is a corker of a director!

I first fell for his directorial style in his 1996 movie, Romeo + Juliet. I loved absolutely everything about it! I was hooked.

“For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”

His next film was Moulin Rouge! There are no words to describe my feelings for this film. I saw it multiple times in the theatre with my friends in high school. I know the sound track by heart.

“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”

In 2008 his latest film debuted, Austrlia. This was an epic, EPIC movie! Every shot was beyond amazing! Abolutely gorgeous… Hugh Jackman wasn’t bad either! HA!

“I sing you to me.”


I am now in deep anticipation waiting for his next project…


The book itself is one of my favorite reads. Now Mr. Lurhman has taken on the project and I cannot even imagine the level he will take this too. He has cast Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan. Tobey McGuire will play Nick Carraway and it is rumored that Ben Affleck will play Tom Buchanan. There has been debate on his casting choices but I have full faith in his decisions. (I will watch Leo anytime — He is brilliant!) The release of this film cannot come soon enough. There are not many details available as they are in pre-production now. AH! I can’t fucking WAIT!!


One thought on “The Great Gatsby.

  1. ugh, me too. you do remember that the night we saw moulin rouge was the night some douchebags wanted us to “come to their truck and check out their stereo” or something? it’s a good thang we were a group of strong gals.

    I liked Austrailia a lot, but it was no Romeo & Juliet, and no Moulin Rouge. Those two kill it for me. R&J is when I discovered Leo; had the film’s ad taped to the inside of my locker @ Crockett.
