This luscious film restores the creature's nobility and gives him peace.

Overall, this Dracula could have been less heavy and more deliciously evil than it is, but it does offer a sumptuous engorgement of the senses.

A somewhat dispersed and overcrowded story line that remains fascinating and often affecting thanks to all its visual and conceptual energy.

This lack of a convincing central dynamic leads to the occasional sense that the film is little more than a spectacular edifice, but you'll be too spellbound to resist seduction.

With Dracula it's apparent that Mr. Coppola's talent and exuberance survive.

It is Coppola's most lavish and, certainly, his most flamboyant film; never before has he allowed himself this kind of mad experimentation.

The movie is an exercise in feverish excess, and for that if for little else, I enjoyed it.

In Bram Stoker's Dracula, director Francis Ford Coppola wins endless vam-Pyrrhic victories but loses the narrative war.

Oldman is so vivid and funny as the cackling, centuries-old Dracula that we look forward to seeing what he'll do in the London scenes.
