Baz Luhrmann crazied up ‘The Great Gatsby’

I’ve never actually read F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s 1925 novel The Great Gastby, mostly because no one ever reads that unless it’s for a high school English class. That being said, I’m pretty sure it didn’t have Kanye West songs with weird, sparkly, colorful stuff festooned all around it. Yes, Baz Luhrmann is basically trying to remake Moulin Rouge all over again, which means throwing modern theatricality at the 1920’s, hoping something sticks. I’m not sure how much of it does stick, but at least it might be fun to watch?
