How much time do people waste pretending that they don't absolutely love Baz Luhrmann? Is it not completely obvious that the man should have so much more commercial success than he has had? His films are practically built for a wide market of viewers, filled to the brim with luscious visuals and playful whimsy. As somebody who considers "Romeo + Juliet" and "Moulin Rouge" to be somewhere in the scheme of his 100 Best Films of All Time, as well as being unapologetic about my love for "Australia", a rather overly maligned film, "The Great Gatsby" is damn close to the top of my list for the end of year rounds. Pack "Avengers", "The Dark Knight Rises", "Prometheus", and "The Hobbit" into a bundle, you won't even come close to the sparkle Baz clearly has in store for us!
