The Cotton Club (1984)

An American film noir directed by Francis Ford Coppola, starring Richard Gere, Diane Lane, Bob Hoskins, James Remar and Nicolas Cage.
The social drama of a group of people from night clubs in Harlem is shown. A low level Irish criminal gets a job to babysit the mob boss's wife and they fall in love.
Another boring FFC flick. I should just delete the whole batch. This one had song and dance numbers and seemed like a mostly white cast version of Idlewild (2006). The plot barely held any of my interest and I didn't care what happened to the characters. The female lead was good looking, but failed to earn anatomy points. The characters were generally acted fine and the film was well-made, had good production value and made sense. There were some scenes where I noticed good camera-work, but it bored me to distraction. Overall, I'm thinking that Coppola is not for folks who like Tarantino and Jodorowsky. I rate this poor.
