  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    Une somptueuse reconstitution d'une époque épique, agrémenté d'un merveilleux jeu des acteurs pour un spectacle vraiment envoûtant... www.cinefiches.com

  2. José Neves's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    35mm, re-rating. What a sadness to review certain films after so many years and only discover the will that in a certain period formed us, namely the politic of authors. Coppola, in this film, failed the synthesis that with the Godfathers had found (especially with the second tomo) and above all did not find the musicality he so much sought (and made seminal in "One From the Heart"). An often amateurish movie.

  3. Francisca Mendes's rating of the film The Cotton Club

  4. Dalibor's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    Coppola takes a huge bite on numerous topics from prohibition time crime milieu, birth of popular music, racial segregation, to women's rights and inner city ethnic tensions. Almost none of them are fully developed, and some barely believable at all (like Gere-Cage relationship). What does work is a somewhat likeable semi-documentary of lavish jazz era.

  6. Marion Pons's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    Pour la bande originale et les costumes.

  7. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    Howe, howe, howe! It well captures the athmosphere of the 30's. The jazz, the sound, the dance show. But what is entirely underdeveloped is crime. Remember, we are in the middle of prohibition, mafia and gang rivalism in New York! Apparently Coppola has other intensions. What can that be? A musical-gangsterfilm-jazztrumpeterbiography-gangstercartoon-mixture? Maybe in 1984 he had Rob Marshall's "Chicago" in his mind.

  8. traag-1's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    Movie dragged on and didn't hit me in any particular way. I had my eye on Diane Lane the entire time. FINE.

  9. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    A flawed film yes but Coppola stills packs plenty in

  10. Christian Harding's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    Pretty solid flick, but the score by John Barry was absolutely bitchin'.

  11. Miguel Del Rosal Fuentes's rating of the film The Cotton Club

    Magical story from the 1920s in Harlem, with the background of the gangsters' time. Both Richard Gere and Diane Lane fully display their acting virtues. The music is awesome, I loved all that jazz. However predictable, the script flows nice and easy. Of course I won't tell you about the ending; allow me just to say that it turns out to be Disney-like. The movie is not so dramatic. I even laughed from time to time!
