The great Leonardo

Late last night my husband and I watched The Great Gatsby in our room. We seldom come out of our cocoon these days, preferring to stay home and indulge in our own interests. I have heard so much about The Great Gatsby, yet hadn’t got the chance to watch it until last night. Great performance by all the stars, especially Leonardo DiCaprio. The story makes me sad, however. I feel sorry for the main character Jay Gatsby, whose real name is James Gatz. DiCaprio was a perfect choice for the role. The last film of him that I watched was Django Unchained, which was directed by Quentin Tarantino. As usual, DiCaprio carried his role brilliantly.

After the movie ended, my husband commented: “What a weird movie.” I guess it’s not the type of film that he favors.

We joked about how the female dancers’ (in a certain private club) moves somewhat resembled those of Beyonce’s signature booty shakes. Did they really dance like that in New York in the early 1900s? I joked maybe those were Beyonce’s ancestors back in the early 1900s. Later after seeing Jay Z’s name came out as the Executive Producer in the movie credits, we both uttered: “Oh, no wonder!”

Overall, I think the movie is alright and kind of classy. Go on, watch it… or buy the book and read it. It’s a beautiful tragedy.
