Jesse’s review published on Letterboxd:
a cursed lineage. even the act of american authority assigning the name “corleone” to vito, over his birth name, carries major weight in that regard. corleone is the town where vito was born. it’s where his whole family was killed. it’s where the hex was placed; on the lawn of don cici’s mansion. cici himself declares the inevitability of vito’s existence, exactly as it occurs years later. it’s a part of him forever. doomed.
cinema operating at its highest power.
