Review: The Great Gatsby

Hi everyone! I know it's a bit late to be doing this review considering it's been out for ages but I had to share with you what I thought of it.

BRILLIANTLY AMAZING. I had no idea what to expect, having not read the book, which I intend to read now and only gaining vague plot lines from different people but it really surprised me. The director Baz Luhrmann is one of my favourites (he directed Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge) and his over-the-top staging and costumes was what I was hoping for, as well as his classic symbolism with the eyes of Dr T.J. Eckleburg (I did my research!). It all felt a little bit surreal and unrealistic, especially in 3-D, but I love the style of the 1920's so it ticked all the boxes for me! Plus the soppy love triangle story line got my approval as well! Although the ending was slightly confusing, I won't ruin it for people who haven't seen it but yeah I really didn't know who did it.... 100% recommend everyone go see it!

Ever since then I cannot stop playing this song by Lana Del Ray, although it makes me feel thoroughly depressed and highlights the fact that I can't sing, it's still beautiful.

Anyone seen this film? What's your thoughts?
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
