The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

Don’t know the last time I watched this (but haven't logged on here, so at least seven years?) Stone cold masterpiece.

Crazy how this thing moves. The slowest portion is the opening, but it perfectly sets the stage, stakes, and dynamics of the family. Has plenty of the violence associated with the genre, but the character beats are what make it stand above.

The contrast and shadows also looked stunning in the Dolby Cinema. While I've always said I like Part 2 more, I'm not so sure anymore...
