Another book I need to read

at some point in the next 18-24 months is The Great Gatsby, since I hear Baz Luhrmann is making it into a film (and has cast Carey Mulligan. And Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. I have no opinion on this since I haven’t read the book. Keep up).
I do like Baz Luhrmann’s films – though I should point out I haven’t seen Australia – even if they have a tendency to start off completely manic with edit jump cuts all over the place. Then they settle down, and become lovely and powerful. I wish he’d stop trying to grab our attention in the first 15 minutes and just let us ease in naturally. Baz – calm down, love.
