Poor neglected blog. It’s been weeks and weeks since I’ve been here.
I could lie to you and say that I’ve been toiling elsewhere, spreading myself too thin, with nothing left for you, but we’ve been together for a long time and you deserve better. I blame my absence on a profound sense of ennui.
It’s not for lack of material. I’ve seen some wonderful movies over the past few weeks that I truly want to tell you about (and I will).
Tonight, I’m seeing a preview of Baz Luhrmann’s 3D extravaganza, The Great Gatsby and I can feel my mojo returning just thinking about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic tale of 1920s excess filtered through Luhrmann’s lush and opulent sensibility.
Here is a sampling of images from the film to prime the pump so to speak…
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
