It takes two to make an accident
Quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald: “It takes two to make an accident.”
THE GREAT GATSBY
And that's what had happened. An accident. Nothing more; it couldn't be anything more, just two people being fools. Just two people making a mistake that would be impossible to forget. Just two people letting the heart make a choice that was meant for the head.

I have always liked Baz Luhrmann and his big, shiny, stupid films. I like the gauche, comic-book way he puts shots together, and I like how frenetic and noisy his movies are, and how awkwardly beautiful he makes people look. Luhrmann handles the subtleties of the source material by largely ignoring them, and what started out as a social novel about the very rich becomes a gaudy, garish fantasy about love. Carey Mulligan as Daisy looks too fresh-faced next to the rest of the cast, but she and DiCaprio pull off a convincing chemistry, and she spends most of the film dressed as a flower fairy and looks good enough to eat. In his retelling the Gatsby and Buchanan mansions become impossible fairytale castles; Manhattan an amusement park; the rest of Long Island a scene from Dante. I also found myself bristling at the technique of having words appear on the screen as Nick says them.
