the great gatsby. a trip.

27 May

yesterday me and my lovely haidresser friend nina spent the evening at the movies watching

the great gatsby.

3 D and OV.

if you watch it, do watch it in 3 D. and if you liked moulin rouge you will ADORE gatsby. for me it was not so much about the story (we all do know the story, right?) or the actors (yeah, leo is getting better with age like a good wine. i used to adore carey mulligan but was shocked at her botox forehead in cannes last week and kind of tend to loose my respect. how old is she? uuh, 28 already! botox time! WTF?)…

no it showed that the whole music/photography/music/3D experience turned out to be quite a trip.

yes, amazing costumes. thank you miu miu and prada for that.

but the music! loved it. always with a twist and certainly a lot of humour.

even lana del rey’s (choke!) contribution made sense.

emeli sandé  ❤ ❤ ❤

ah, and brian ferry!!!! brian ferry. thank you. i’ve always loved you. (and if you read this: sorry for stalking you on a london antique fair some years ago. i just couldn’t help myself ❤ )

    I just love this soundtrack! We listened to it on the drive up here last week. Really looking forward to seeing the film, though… especially with the Prada costumes! I had no idea! The whole thing sounds like typical Baz Luhrmann, who I am a big fan of. I was so obsessed with Romeo + Juliet when it came out in high school (shit. I think I just dated myself). Bummer about the botox though. Oh, Hollywood… just let people be!

    lovely inserts – (isn’t Bryan Ferry glorious?) and how perfect that you went to see the movie with your coiffeuse.

    very hollywood.

      haha! i’ve never thought about it that way?
      would it still be hollywood-ish if i took my accountant? 🙂

      and yes: brian ferry! he is truly glorious ❤

        Especially if you took Bernie, your attorney (do you know the Blossom Dearie song?)

        now i have to find an attorney named bernie. (maybe i’m lucky when i come to LA)

    I haven’t seen the movie yet (and not sure that I’m gonna love it….), but everybody seems to agree on one thing : the soundtrack is perfect. So at least, if I don’t like the movie (and the 3D), I’m pretty sure I’m gonna like the music…
    Oh, and glad to finally see some new posts on this blog !
