Jack Clayton United States, 1974

Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Great Gatsby

Listless adaptation falling somewhat short of Fitzgerald's first person prose amid a gauzy recreation of a jazz age seemingly permanently danced to The Charleston. The strongest moments remind one more of Steinbeck or Williams, but this is scant recommendation for a lovingly assembled parade of period chintz. Redford is stolid and Farrow hysterical, leaving Waterstone and Chiles to achieve the required air.
