The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

“I’m with you now. I’m with you.”

Lucrative revisit. First go-around, I was too green for it and I couldn’t follow the plot. Still came out feeling that it deserves its reputation but I hadn’t formed any opinions, really. A naive five stars. This time, I managed to soak it all in. And you know what? Uh... yeah, it’s a fantastic movie, five stars.

Call me a blasphemer but Brando’s acting style in this is a weird decision. It’s distinctive but it’s also kinda silly? Not a complaint, just a thought. It’s fun! Pacino is the star in my mind, anyway. Lettieri? Love that guy. Great face.

Flawless? Eh, almost. It’s so impressive, though, in its scale and construction, that I don’t mind. 175 minutes never dragged. I was shocked when I checked my progress and I’d already made it an hour. I imagine I could see this again within the next couple years and feel the same way. That’s the magic of Da Gawdfawtha!
