Sharply uneven, Coppola's period musical about he famous Harlem club is lavishly produced but shallow.

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.

This musical gangster movie is a tour de force, even if a little muddled.
December 11, 2007
Lavish, interesting, evocative but strained and self-conscious, Cotton Club is all watchable curiosity.

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

The narrative is a mess despite the simplistic twinning of tales.
October 23, 2004
Whatever it took to do it, Coppola has extracted a very special film out of the checkered history of this project.

Ambitious, but like many post-Apocalypse Coppola films, it doesn't quite hit the mark.

There're always something and someone interesting just around the corner; and, if Coppola seems to have difficulty with the story's narrative line, he does manage to help the audience keep straight the huge cast of characters.

Coppola's claustrophobic fall from Eden is both fascinating and beautiful to watch.
