Oh, good. Another film about men who can't grow up.
"Mayan Blue" is an atypical Georgia film. Most of the crew either come from or live in North Georgia, yet the film was shot entirely in Guatemala and features an abundance of breathtaking underwater cinematography.
Sandwiched among the usual superheroes and science-fiction epics comes a very odd summer tentpole release, an extravagant, big budget adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary masterpiece, "The Great Gatsby," directed by Baz Luhrmann ("Moulin Rouge!", "Romeo + Juliet") and in 3-D.
