Usually at least once a year there is a film that makes me regret that decision, in 2013 Gatsby is that film.
In the '74 version, Gatsby is portrayed as a little obsessive and self-absorbed, but Luhrmann gives us a Gatsby who is more than obsessed...this Gatsby seems more than a little obsessed with Daisy and displays possible mental issues that might be due to PTSD from Gatsby's time in the military, an issue that was glossed over in the '74 version and in Fitzgerald's novel, but Luhrmann chose to put it front and center as the through line for the character, making certain things the character does cringe-worthy.
Since the movie is directed by auteurs , you get the attention of critics and since Dicaprio has been following the shtick for quite some time he has developed a major fan following similar to Tarantino but only bigger and add to that the usual fan following for a hot male movie star and you have recipe for financially successful movie.
