Billboards for THE GREAT GATSBY, director Baz Luhrmann’s take on F.Scott Fitzgerald‘s masterpiece, are popping up all over Los Angeles, citing a May 10 premiere. I’ve listened to Fitzgerald aficionados say that the movie does not appeal to them (okay, they put it in stronger terms), but I can’t wait to see it. One of the controversies about the film is Luhrmann’s use of modern music in the soundtrack of a period piece set in the 1920s. Bring it on!

I can’t wait to see a party on Gatsby’s estate done with a $100+ million dollar budget!
