Two years ago, on this blog, I questioned the wisdom of filming The Great Gatsby in 3D, and further, having Cary Mulligan as Daisy. Check it out here. Now that the film is in theatres, and has received less than positive reviews, I feel that my original apprehensions have been borne out. I have heard a bit of the soundtrack from the film, and think that having Jay-Z doing some of the music is rather discordant. I can get behind Bryan Ferry, ex of Roxy Music, doing some of his old songs like “Love is a Drug” as well as “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse, as jazz standards, since he’s done that before.
Have you seen the new Great Gatsby? What did you think? I might go see it, but I have to find some time!
