PAt Dort’s review published on Letterboxd:
Coppola’s West Side Story isn’t interested in being held to any conventional sense of cinematic or narrative language. Instead, it’s whatever he wants at any given moment. At times, to many styles or techniques are employed. But for the most part, I’m just impressed that people are still finding ways to reinvent black and white this long after color. The smoke in this hits wayyyyy to hard and when i die, absolutely bury me with the clip of Rusty James’s first fight.
