The Great Gatsby

It stands the test of time. During the scene in which the major characters are in a hotel, desperate to escape from the oppressive summer's day, the heat and the humidity are palpable on the actors' sweat, radiating off the film and onto the viewer's skin. It edges out the 2013 Baz Luhrmann remake in its emotional resonance, if a comparison must be drawn. Both are superior films, but then again, how can one go wrong with this classic story by F. Scott Fitzgerald?

The Great Gatsby

A fresh reinterpretation of a favorite American classic. A thoroughly enjoyable ride from start to end. The only criticism may be that it is slightly less emotionally resonant than the 1974 film version. If you have seen that one (and love it), resist the temptation to compare the two. The two films are products of two different eras. Both can be fully enjoyed because both are true to the source material.

An Education

A quiet film with a subversive side. Carey Mulligan is a revelation in the lead role.

Bonobo

It is an odd, or perhaps quirky, film that raises unusual questions about modern social relationships. I found the film to be warm, with heart. It might be a good change of pace without venturing into the “inaccessible” territory where some “indie” films live. You’ll know if it’s for you within the first 15 minutes.

War and Peace

Younger cast than the older film version. The scenes are gorgeous but not overdone. Given the length of the source material, the mini-series format allows proper pacing and does justice to Tolstoy’s classic.
