The Great Gatsby – trailer 2

The second trailer for Baz Lurhman’s adaption of The Great Gatsby further confirms the high expectations set by the first: Lurhman’s ability to carefully balance utter theatrically with raw emotion, whilst never straying into maudlin territory, is truly unique.

His success with adaptations in the past has demonstrated his ability to remain true to the narratives central conceit, without displaying misplaced reverence for assumed authorial intent. Needless to say, as a fervid Lurhman fan, I await the release of The Great Gatsby with anticipation.
