Baz Luhrmann – The Great Gatsby Trailer 1Embed
New York, 1922
"Human beings in a mob..."
The tempo of the city had changed sharply.
The buildings were higher.
The parties were bigger.
The morals were looser and the liquor was cheaper.
"I stand by you, walk through the fire
Your love is my scripture."
The restlessness approached hysteria.
"Who is this Gatsby?"
"Do you know him?"
"Mr. Gatsby doesn't exist."
"Gatsby, what Gatsby?"
"I beg your pardon, Mr. Gatsby would like to speak to you, alone."
"I'm certainly glad to see you again."
"I'm certainly glad to see you as well."
"When I made the pleasure of Mr. Gatsby's acquaintance, I discovered a man of fine breeding."
"Very interesting, is everything all right?"
"Love is blindness, I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night around me?
Oh, my heart, love is blindness."
"You always look so cool.
The man in the cool beautiful shirts."
"She has to tell him she never loved him."
"Love is clockworks and cold steel
Fingers too numb to feel.
Squeeze the handle, blow out the candle
Love is blindness."
"I just heard the most shocking thing."
"It all makes sense!"
"Will you come old sport? We need you."
"I wish we could just run away."
"Mr. Gatsby sir--"
"What kind of a row are you trying to cause in my house?"
"Get the hell out of here!"
"I wish I had done everything on Earth with you."
