"Was all this made from your imagination?"
- A line among lines from The Great Gatsby
3D is dead.
I know, I know that's a big statement for a 3D director to make. What I mean to say is 3D as a movie gimmick is dead.
That's the impression I got walking away from an opening night showing of The Great Gatsby in 3D. Director Baz Luhrmann's re-imagination of Fitzgerald's well-known novel is out this weekend and it holds some really interesting secrets for creative directors. I won't get into a flat out review of the film itself, except to say it sparked a whole lot of discussion from urban theatregoers as they exited the multiplex.
