The Great Gatsby: quick addendum

Two things more on the movie:

1. I figured out what the soundtrack did to the movie. It is like your eyes are watching one movie while your ears are listening to another. Now it is possible that is what the director was trying to achieve, but it did not work. At least for me.

2. I just remembered. It struck me at the time, but I forgot when I wrote the last post. At the end Carraway writes “The Great” over the “Gatsby” typed on the cover page of his manuscript. It is very schizophrenic writing. I will try to post the screenshot if I can find it somewhere online. The T of “The” is almost a J. The E is very curved. The T and E in “Great” are both angular/straight. What’s with that?
