There are far too many movies to this list – I even wrote a big blog post about my favourites back in August.
But in honour of my vow to not repeat blog posts, I’m going to say something new:
The Great Gatsby (2013)
On the other side of this is modern songs sung in a twenties style: from Beyoncé to Amy Winehouse these really are amazing.
And then there’s the stunning track written & performed for the film from Lana Del Rey in Young & Beautiful. It’s iconic & gorgeous & she just suits the aesthetics of the film so well – it was the perfect pairing.
Bad Luhrman’s choice in music played a big part in his vision for the film, made it fresh & exciting yet not out of place for the era. It was a ballsy move but it really paid off.
