The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

Haven't seen this in ages but i figured i should rewatch it before i watch Part 2 which i'll probably see tomorrow, i remember this was (probably) the first big classic movie that i ever saw so it left a big impact on me, almost saw this on Pacino's birthday which would have been cool but eh any day where i get to watch this movie is a good one.

I mean what else can i say? It's The Godfather, there's a reason this is possibly the most acclaimed movie of all time. I can't get over how amazing the lighting in this movie is, the use of shadows is very striking & adds to the atmosphere perfectly, Michael has one of the greatest character arcs ever written, the performances are out of this world, & there are some scenes that are just so insanely well done (the scene where michael does the assasination & the baptism scene mainly).

I know the biggest cliche a "Cinephile" can do is to call The Godfather a masterpiece but yeah, The Godfather is a masterpiece.
