Reviews
Mine: Some really good stuff. Great score. But it does not really hold together. Diane is gorgous, as usual.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Homage to the days of colorful gangsters and Harlem nightlife has style to spare and a wonderful soundtrack full of Duke Ellington music (Gere plays his own cornet solos); all it needs is a story and characters whose relationships make some sense. Visually striking with good scenes scattered about. In any case, the movie isn't nearly as interesting as the published stories about its tumultuous production!
