It's really quite sad if you think about it; not so long ago, Baz Luhrmann was the darling of Hollywood, a breath of fresh air in an increasingly formulaic industry.

Why the Critics are Wrong About Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

The Great Gatsby is stunning, but it's meaningfully, provocatively stunning. This isn't just awesome spectacle for spectacle's sake. Luhrmann uses sensory overload in a similar way to Harmony Korine in Springbreakers - to disorientate the audience and send them reeling into a hallucinogenic whirl.

One of the problems with adapting a famous literary work for film is that there is a lot of subtext and nuance to try and capture in a visual super-text medium. This problem is compounded when the director is known for his visual flair rather than his subtlety.

For instance, in the case of India it was not war, but economic reforms which gave birth to this culture.
