The cinematic design and the decoration within the film World are extremely pushed. The beautiful exterior shot of New York City from above and the Buchanan’s Mansion are impressive Views of such overwhelming elegance. Attention to detail put into the film seems to be overwhelmingly obsessive and is to be. However, we can attack Luhrmann (the director) For uses of richness and excessive design of the film when the movie deals with the novel, as they need to think about profit and the wow fact of the movie. For this movie, Overkill extravagant is appropriate. The visual that was used in The Great Gatsby is portrayed among a number of mediums.

During the time in the 1920s, full sentences appeared only in handwritten at the big screen through this effect; it makes the timeline of the movie more relatable. “The uses of the 3D camera were a positive aspect as it brings the cinematic world to life” (Luhrmann).

When it comes to a movie that is based on their past event or a different timeline Luhrmann Makes sure that they followed the law against Anachronism. The law is stating that the filmmakers should not include an object that is not appropriate for the time because the object was made later within the timeline. In the context of The Great Gatsby, Catherine Martin (set director) used the influential reference of the 1920s to make the movie more presentable within the time frame. Also, Luhrmann does not fail to impress. The movie is based on the Jazz Age The Roaring 1920s and parties were high of the time. The parties were infused with hip pop and Beats, which were not formed at that time. That can easily be forgiven due to the visual and character interaction of that time.
Ultimately, the success of the Great Gatsby proves the importance of cinematography, time, Story, and representation of the character in the film. Lutheran and Martin’s creativity and historical references bring life to characters, timelines, and Fitzgerald’s novel. Emphasizing the 1920s, and representing the status and personalities of the characters thus making The Great Gatsby (2013) the best movie of 2013.
