Given its garish production history, one rather expected The Cotton Club to sing with hot-jazz desperation. Instead, we get the mediocre craftsmanship of a pit band in Vegas.

It was the most assured film Coppola had made in a decade, full of casual wit and visual invention.

Whatever it took to do it, Coppola has extracted a very special film out of the checkered history of this project.
