  1. violentcraving's rating of the film The Great Gatsby

    Alan Ladd was incredible in this. A very believable Gatsby, in my opinion, much more so than Robert Redford. Since it was made closer to the Roaring Twenties, this film lacks the now common air of nostalgia for that era and manages to focus much more deeply on the emotional implications of the story. IMO, that makes it worthy of a 5/5.

  2. Michael Harbour's rating of the film The Great Gatsby

    Seems rather lacking in ambition, skimming lightly through most of the story. Occasional particularly effective scenes stand out; Gatsby displaying his stuff (which brought me to realize that James Franco's character, Alien, in SPRING BREAKERS is modeled on Gatsby), and Gatsby's demise among them.

  3. Charles Coleman's rating of the film The Great Gatsby

    I liked Alan Ladd, liked the cinematography but the story was a bit of a bit of a mess. The end also inexplicably drags for far too long. See it for Ladd, the other actors, the art direction, and the camera work.
