Abstract:The aim of this diploma thesis was to find postmodern elements in Luhrman’s film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. Since The Great Gatsby is a modernist novel, published in 1925 and the aim was to find postmodern elements in the movie adaptation, modernism and postmodernism are explained first. Then the novel with its content, themes, motifs and symbols is examined thoroughly in order to explain how postmodern elements in the movie make the novel’s story interesting for today’s generation. Finally the postmodern elements in the movie are examined and connected to the novel’s story, themes, motifs and symbols. I came to the conclusion that postmodern elements in the movie are the reason why the movie adaptation of the novel, published almost ninety years ago, is so interesting to today’s generation.
Keywords:modernism, postmodernism, The Great Gatsby, 1920s, postmodern elements in the movie, cinematic techniques, the music, the fashion.

Title:Postmodernistične prvine v Luhrmannovi adaptaciji romana Veliki Gatsby
Abstract:Cilj pričujočega diplomskega dela je bil najti postmodernistične elemente v Luhrmannovi filmski adaptaciji Fitzgeraldove novele Veliki Gatsby. Ker je Veliki Gatsby modernistična novela, izdana leta 1925, in ker je cilj diplomskega dela najti postmodernistične elemente v filmski adaptaciji te novele, sta najprej obrazložena modernizem in postmodernizem. Nato je novela z njeno vsebino, temami, motivi ter simboli podrobno razložena, zato da smo lahko kasneje razložili, kako postmodernistični elementi v filmu naredijo zgodbo novele zanimivo za današnjo generacijo. Na koncu so razloženi ter povezani z novelo ter njeno vsebino, temami, motivi in simboli še postmodernistični elementi v filmu. Prišla sem do zaključka, da so postmodernistični elementi filma razlog, da je filmska adaptacija novele, ki je izšla pred skoraj devetdesetimi leti, tako zanimiva za današnjo generacijo.
Keywords:modernizem, postmodernizem, Veliki Gatsby, 1920-ta, glasba, moda, postmodernistični elementi v filmu, tehnika snemanja.
