movie: the great gatsby

8

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… And one fine morning - So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

The Great Gatsby (2013) dir. Baz Luhrmann

ill be honest with you.. i totally read "the great gansey" on that gifset at first

Ah yes, The Great Gansey is my favorite book, yes, a classic, told from the perspective of a man who moves into a small cottage in the shadow of wealth and discovers that his neighbor is a wild mysterious blonde guy who likes fast cars, the past, being in love with the wrong person, and looking out of tall windows like the dramatic hoe that he is. Motifs include Death, the nature of dreams, Oxford graduates of a dubious nature, and feisty women with short haircuts. Several people are punched in the face.

“I hope she’ll be a fool – that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”

–F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
