Exceptionally well-made and completely fearless in its depiction of the widest range of romantic emotions, this is a film as fiercely committed to passion as its heroine, and that's saying a lot.

If Deanne Stillman ("Cairo by the Mohave," Guest Bites Town, May 10) wants to do a brilliant, ironic, erudite, warmed-over takeoff on Aldoux Huxley and F.

Warner Bros.' decision to delay the release of "The Great Gatsby" from December to next summer will give director Baz Luhrmann more time to finish its extensive 3D effects and a planned all-star soundtrack, according to two people close to the picture not authorized to speak publicly.
