Gorgeous Gatsby

"I hope she'll be a fool — that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool . . . You see, I think everything's terrible anyhow . . . And I know. I've been everywhere and seen everything and done everything."

Well I don't wish to be a fool. I'm desperate to go everywhere and see everything. But I'll start small and just see the new Gatsby. It has a SERIOUS amount to live up to as the Redford/Farrow original is just perfect, but the trailer holds a lot of promise. And it's directed by that artist of light, Baz Luhrmann - I ADORE HIM! (Well maybe not that Australia epic, but it did have Hugh Jackman to get me through the tedium). Watch it and revel in the splendour. Oh and read Fitzgerald's book – it's heart breaking!

"They were careless people, Tom and Daisy — they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money of their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made."
