I just saw the film. I’ve never read the book.
From what I can tell the film gives wayyyy more to the book than is apparently intended.
Is Gatsby obsessed or just in love, and it’s romantic?
I can’t tell because it seems like the film creates a lot of ideas, that are not plainly stated in the book
The Great Gatsby always seemed like one of those books young confused people read and apply incorrectly to their life. Sad hipsters, if you will.
But I could be totally wrong because I haven’t read it. I would love to talk with someone who has, or even loves the book. Because I’m not sure what to think of the film.
