History tells us that would-be auto mogul reputation Tucker was a silver-tongued con man, who misappropriated his investors" money and also played fast and loose with ethics and legalities in the pursuit of his dream. Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola isn"t to buy this: come hear Coppola call it, Tucker to be "Mr. Smith Goes to Detroit," a sincere visionary who tried and failed to buck the huge Three auto manufacturers. Moreover, he was a staunch defender of family values, as witness his inseparable connection with his loyal mam (Joan Allen) and also adoring children. It to be for his family"s sake, rather than any kind of dreams of jae won gain, that Tucker produced the oddball three-headlight vehicle which he envisioned together the "car the the future." Naturally, the that company fat cat of 1947 can"t abide competition native a rugged individualist; thus, with numerous politicos in their pockets, castle crush the Tucker and the man who developed it. We"d have actually been more inclined to think the story had actually Coppola embraced a simple Capraesque approach and also not used all sorts of complicated camera trickery. Somehow, through presenting Tucker in so showoffy a directorial manner, the character come off much more as a sleight-of-hand artist 보다 a bastion that sincerity. Even so, Jeff Bridges walk a nice job as Tucker, as does boy name Landau as Tucker"s incongruous business partner. Jeff"s dad, Lloyd Bridges, shows up in an uncredited function as a "bought" senator.
