Let's be honest. You should just read the
BOOK

You are way too picky to have a "Gatsby" movie satisfy your very precise tastes. None of the movies are going to please you because you'd just prefer your unrestrained imagination to anyone else's vision. Oh well, "so we beat on." Right? Grab a cup of coffee and pull the book off your shelf for a night of existential dreaming.

Cool, What you should watch is the lost movie from
1926

The trailer (above) is only part of this silent movie that still survives. It is said to have the most acurate party scenes—all the rage during Prohibition—but it takes liberties with the plot and interpretation. F. Scott Fitzgerald walked out of the theater when he saw this movie. His wife Zelda called it "rotten" and "awful."

Far out! You should watch the movie from
1974

Robert Redford and Mia Farrow star in this romantic love story mainly focused on the Gatsby–Daisy relationship. This deliberate adaptiont pulls lines directly from the book and thoroughly explains the plot for anyone who might not have already read the book.

Old Sport, you should watch the made-for-TV film from
2000

This movie is clean, simple take on "The Great Gatsby." The lavishness of the parties and homes is simplified to let the actors carry their interpretation of the film. Starring Toby Stephens, Mira Sorveno and Paul Rudd, this film is a modern take that is more humble and not as daring as the new 2013 film.

Head to the theaters to see the version from
2013

Baz Luhrmann's new adaptation of The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Macguire translates the novel for a modern day audience complete with color, cinematography and a killer soundtrack produced by Jay-Z. This fast-paced movie is very faithful to the book—almost too faithful, some critics say.
