After so many years, each time I watch it, I am always angry about Mia Farrow. She is absolutely bad; worst choice for "Daisy". Did you know that she was one of nine actresses on the short list? I am also wondering, how, such a character like "Gatsby", could fall in love with her. No way. These two things trouble me. It doesn't fit. That is why 3 stars only. Unforgettable: the pool, fluttering curtains.
Not sure why people hate on this so much, old sport. Also, did no one notice or get how superb Bruce Dern is in this film? Come on! I love how everything glitters, eyes shine, tears sparkle, the water on the pool shimmers and even the sweat glimmers. Utterly captivating and it's pretty funny in parts. Wonderful.
Can we delete Mia's scenes and stick only with Robert Redford and Sam Waterston? AND WAIT A MINUTE, Scott Wilson! So fucking cute! I love the story but Mia is a miss hit as Daisy. And why the fuck is every man in this movie so sweaty? And, just saying... I hate Tom and Daisy so much. Die, you fucking bastards, die!
paleta de colores claros azul y blancos los encuadres son variados muchos planos largos y medios y alguno que otro planos detalle los movimientos de la cámara son fijos y con cortes contante mi opinión de la película es muy buena . me gusto como es que se manejo la historia y como es que los mismos personajes te van introduciendo a la historia. al final te termina enganchando con el protagonista al extrañarlo.
2 1/2 out of 5 stars. There's very little that's as irksome as when two gorgeous people have no chemistry together. The cast was either dull or annoying and the running time was too long for what was delivered. Maybe Baz Luhrmann's version kind of ruined this more sedate version for me but god, this was dull. A great case for how badly Luhrmann's version was needed.
I am paying every month for this membership and almost every time I want to watch a film that I like it is not available. For example The Great Gatsby by Clayton in 1974. So what's the point to continue paying MUBI? I hope you people from MUBI could give an answer. Georgina
Fair adaptation of the Fitzgerald classic by screenwriter Coppola and director Clayton marred by a bland Gatsby by Robert Redford and a truly miscast Mia Farrow as Daisy. The lack of anything even suggesting passion between the two sinks the film despite its supporting players, set design and Oscar winning costumes. Waterston quite good in the lifeless narrator role. Hoping for greatness in the Luhrmann version.
