The Godfather: Part II

The Godfather: Part II ★★★★½

"Michael, you can never lose your family"
"Times are changing..."
This really is technically my first watch all the way through not on TV. Family means everything to me so this kills me.

Might be heinous to say but even though the cutting between Vito and Michael is one of the best bits about this, I almost kind of like the chronological cut better that has all of Vito's scenes grouped together (The Godfather Epic). Sometimes the cuts were pretty off in tone and killed the weight some scenes had.

The first time I saw this I was so so on it bc I kind of got lost in all the business details and what was happening in Cuba but now it ended up being one of my favorite aspects. Has any other movie involving the Cuban Revolution shown the POV of the deposed right up until the final moments of their rule?
