The Cotton Club

( 1 )

Overview

Another of director Francis Ford Coppola's noble failures, this MGM DVD release of The Cotton Club shows that Coppola's misfires often contain more entertainment value than other people's successes. While the movie contains way too many subplots and characters, it contains first-rate production values, great music, and wonderful sequences. Originally released in 70 mm, the DVD's widescreen anamorphic transfer finally restores the visual luster to the movie and shows off Richard Sylbert's sumptuous production ...

Overview

Another of director Francis Ford Coppola's noble failures, this MGM DVD release of The Cotton Club shows that Coppola's misfires often contain more entertainment value than other people's successes. While the movie contains way too many subplots and characters, it contains first-rate production values, great music, and wonderful sequences. Originally released in 70 mm, the DVD's widescreen anamorphic transfer finally restores the visual luster to the movie and shows off Richard Sylbert's sumptuous production design. The Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track is flawless and really showcases the movie's crackerjack jazz score. The case says that deleted scenes are included on the disc but unless they are purposefully hidden on the DVD as "Easter eggs," they are not on the disc. This is a shame because Coppola reportedly had to cut out many of the movie's best musical numbers and they should be restored to a future DVD for the movie that revolves around a famous jazz club.

    Great gift!

    This was a gift for my father who really likes this movie. He was happy that I could replace his worn out VHS with a DVD.
