ABSTRACT
This essay aims at analyzing the problematic relationship between jazz and gangsterism in Robert Altman’s Kansas City (1996). Through an analysis of the film’s final sequence, we will bring up a historical background about the theme and investigate how the connection between musical production and organized crime is established through the formal construction of the movie.
