To hear the critics tell it, Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of "The Great Gatsby" is the disappointment of the year. There's not enough jazz, they say. There was no 3-D in the 1920s!

What Did F. Scott Fitzgerald Think of The Great Gatsby, the Movie, in 1926? He Walked Out

I have my own opinions on former film versions, and I think they all fail for the same reason: Fitzgerald's language has already done all the cinematic work for the actors, directors, set designers and producers.
