The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

Few films are as vital to cinematic history as The Godfather. What an absolute classic. What I find so impressive, beyond the filmmaking itself, is how absolutely perfect this team is.

From Coppola, to Brando, to Pacino, to Caan, to Gordon Willis, and beyond, every person attached to this film was absolutely perfect for the project. That doesn't happen often in film, and it's so satisfying to rewatch this knowing all of these masters put their heart and soul into this film.
