My experiences with Baz Luhrmann films:
1996: took my high school girlfriend to see Romeo + Juliet, hated the movie, and got no play.
2002: got drunk and fell asleep watching Moulin Rouge, but had “Lady Marmalade” stuck in my head for days.
Today, 2010: It was announced last month that Luhrmann acquired the rites to The Great Gatsby and I’m just now reading about this???
Tomorrow, 2010: I will wake up the same bitter and jaded bastard that I am today, only I will have fully comprehended what I learned the day prior and will be forced to accept it.
