  • The Great Gatsby is a superficially beautiful hunk of a movie with nothing much in common with the spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel. show more

  • 60

    An opulent and accurate portrayal of the period that drags too much to stay interesting. show more

  • 70

    The Francis Coppola script and Jack Clayton's direction paint a savagely genteel portrait of an upper class generation that deserved in spades what it got circa 1929 and after. show more
