In my experience, most people either love or hate Luhrmann films. I know a lot of critics disliked Gatsby, but, personally, I loved it.
Leo did a fantastic job of playing Gatsby, the vast majority of the other actors did stellar jobs, as well, it stayed pretty true to the book while clearly being an original telling, and, of course, it was so fucking beautiful.
Probably going to see it again next weekend, in 3D this time
My biggest issues were really the score, and Tobey Maguire as the narrator. The score was completely detracting, and while I get the point of trying to "modernize" the story, the score itself did the movie absolutely no favors.
