->A great director is somebody who doesnít draw attention to himself and in the case of ''Tucker'', Coppola is trying WAAAAAY too hard... The soundtrack is always blaring big band music and other music from the day and the camera is constantly doing some flashy trick. You canít just have [[SplitScreenPhoneCall a two shot]] of Jeff Bridges and Joan Allen talking on a phone, we have to have Joan Allenís giant superimposed head over a shot of Jeff Bridges talking in a phone booth. We canít just have Tucker get the inspiration for a car and express it through acting or writing. No, we have to have Tucker spinning on a stool going '[[WorldOfHam WOOOOOOO!!!]]' while the camera spins along with Tucker and that transitions to a [[SpinningNewspaper spinning magazine]] shot which then transitions to a [[KentBrockmanNews newsreel]] type montage. Only its not done in a traditional black and white newsreel of the day. We have to mix in black and white with color and have Tucker [[ReachingBetweenTheLines walk in a seamless transition]] from his living room to his automobile plant all the while [[StandardSnippet Benny Goodman]] is blaring over the soundtrack.
