greatest musical death scene ever


the contrast of The Dutchman's death back-and-forth with Sandman's tap-dancing is the most amazing thing I've ever seen on screen. The Williams brothers tap-dancing throughout was outstanding, whether as a duo or battling each other, but Hines' solo at the end was absolutely incredible and the way the director set it against the murders at the restaurant was the best part of an already strong movie.

I just saw it and the way Coppola juxtaposed those two sequences (dancing and killing) was pretty creative.
