The Great Gatsby (Film: 2013)

Director Baz Luhrman’s penchant for over-stylization fits absolutely perfectly with the excess and splendor present in Fitzgeralds 1922 novel of the same name, pitting modern music and giant party set pieces against a personal, immensely relatable story about the natureĀ of wealth and the American Dream. The casting is phenomenal all around, and the movie stays much more faithful to the source material than I expected.
