The Godfather

The Godfather ★★★★★

A supreme intellectual and artistic achievement by Francis Ford Coppola.

The Godfather fully deserves its reputation as a cultural touchstone and one of best films ever made. is a different classic film, that opened the doors to a wonderful future in cinema. The direction, pacing, perfomances and dialogue are all nearly perfect. The characters are played fantastically, the music is addictive, and the whole movie is fabulously directed. Despite a lenghty runtime it has a propulsive forward momentum that makes it impossible to stop watching. We see Michael Corleone lose his soul yet we're rooting for him all the way to rock bottom because The Godfather never forgets to entertain as it delves into an engrossing, operatic tragedy. Marlon Brando's acting is at a different level He Is by far the best actor ever, he just commands every scene.

💌: The Godfather is a prime example of what a movie should be.
