The Hollywood system couldn’t contain Francis Ford Coppola. In Tucker: The Man And His Dream, his dashing biopic about the forward-thinking automotive designer Preston Thomas Tucker, Coppola locates a figure and a subject—the strained relationship between a gigantic industry and one extraordinary individual—that dovetails with his own personal struggle working within the confines of the Hollywood establishment.

For Coppola, it is among his most personal films, not only because it spent the longest time in gestation, but because it’s the closest the filmmaker has ever come to a confessional about the professional betrayals he’d contended with in his career, and the virtues and flaws of mounting a creative collaboration.

Combining upbeat big-band music and handsome ’Scope framing with the luscious period recreations of production designer Dean Tavoularis and cinematographer Vittorio Storaro (both charter members of the Coppola “family”), Coppola creates a heady enthusiasm not only for the idealism of the late 40s, but also for the remnants of that euphoria that survive in the present.
