Tucker: man and his dream Review

What do you get when you make a biopic on a revolutionary car with the man behind it, finance and produce it through George Lucas and helmed by Francis Ford Coppola. You get the Lucas genius with Coppola's amazing directing, you also get a good cast including Jeff Bridges as Preston Tucker.

This movie was very nostalgic, very heartfelt, very compelling on so many levels. From the interesting idea for the telephone scenes to the monologue by Bridges toward the end, to the overall cheery post war atmosphere, this movie is worth every single minute you watch it.

Preston Tucker designs a car, tries to challenge the Big Three Automakers, and goes through the political and financial debacles many new inventors struggle against in the capital system of the United States.

This is one of those movies where you can't slow down and dissect it because if you do, you're really only trying to ruin the fun and jazziness of this movie. To be honest, because I enjoy every minute of this movie while it covers many moods and many themes, why bother knock it down?

If you haven't seen this movie, get it on a dreary day and let it fill you with hope and perseverance when you realize what the impact of what your dedication can reward you and the people around you with.

Coppola crafted a beautiful experimental masterpiece that this movie is, it has many veteran actors and working forces behind it. It even tried to cover Preston Tucker's life as accurate as possible in the details if not the actual story of Tucker's struggle to produce a better car.

I give this movie a 5 out of 5, see it.
