Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
Dracula the novel certainly wasn't for everybody, and the same is true for Francis Ford Coppola's film, but not for the same reasons. It's a rock opera without the rock or the opera, a Baz Luhrmann film without the cartooniness. The modern pop sensibility suits the Gothic Euronovel well, if that's your sort of thing, like exquisite baclava served with a root beer float. And it features a gorgeous score by Wojciech Kilar.
