Jay Gatsby

I caught this movie last week, and man, it was a grave mistake.
It was the kind of movie that will stay in your mind for a long long time, reenacting the scenes over and over again, reminding you of the heartwrenching plot of the movie.

Thank god I’ve never had the chance to read the book itself.
Now that I’ve seen the movie, I don’t think I should read it. I could just imagine the book is gonna be ten times more sad than the movie.

Especially when the Jay is none other than my great great Leonardo.

And seriously, I think Tobey Macguire deserves a compliment for his role in the movie.
I didn’t even know that he was in the movie! (And Isla Fisher too. Bad bad marketing. Tsk tsk tsk. Or bad bad Leo for stealing all the limelight.)

He was so good in it I’ve never seen him in such intensity before. Even more than Spiderman, which I believe did not require much acting on his part, since being a superhero is more celebrated than the acting itself.

I love it. It has got so many layers, you’ll get lost in it. I wish it didn’t have to end.

And may I just comment on how perfect this song fits the movie. The mood and Lana Del Ray’s dyingggg singing.
Frankly speaking I used to dislike this song, it’s just too “sleepy”, but after the movie, oh man, all it does was remind me about the entire movie.
