Cacophony... a jumbled mess

Coco Chanel said "Once you've dressed, and before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off." This is what Baz should have done. In The Great Gatsby's case, a lot more than one thing should have been taken off or out of this film. It is Over The Top; Bad. Too much fake CGI. In a major cinema complex in Sydney in Cinema 1 (largest theatre in the complex) on the second night of opening it was bearly one quarter full and even then a whole row of 10 patrons walked out after that silly scene in the underground jazz club. It is a cacophony of nothingness. Too much fluff and tinsel. No sympathy for any character could be felt. More about the movie : http://movieinfodb.com/en/movie/64682/The+Great+Gatsby-2013
