    I haven’t seen the Ladd and Baxter versions, but I would say Redford is the best portrayal I’ve seen. But that’s mainly because I don’t really like the Baz Luhrman version of The Great Gatsby.

    FYC Oscars: Licorice Pizza (Best Picture, Best Director, Original Screenplay), The Mitchells vs The Machines (Best Picture, Animated Feature, Original Screenplay), Wes Anderson (Best Director), Denzel Washington (The Tragedy of MacBeth), Andrew Garfield and Robin de Jesus (Tick, Tick...BOOM!), Jayne Houdyshell (The Humans), Stephen Karam (Adapted Screenplay), Attica and Summer of Soul (Best Documentary)

    FYC Razzies: Dear Evan Hansen (in all eligible categories)

    Can’t remember preferring Redford or DiCaprio, and I don’t have much interest in rewatching. The former’s version is too boring (though he was great) and the latter’s version is too too flash, which misses the point of the story (though he was great).
